For today's card, I've used the glamorous KennyK image called Happy Hour.  I used the new Balloon Cluster Die and Swirly Balloon Border Die along with an older sentiment from the Aged to Perfection Notables 3 set.  The diecut of the Balloon Cluster Die was embossed using the Swiss Dots embossing folder then inked to show the embossing.  That's really all there is to this card! No embellishments, but it still somehow looks busy, lol.

Love your card and the saying! I always tell my granddaughters, when they tease me about being around with the dinosaurs, that women age like fine wine and just get better every day (and I only wish that were true in my case)!
