40 & Fabulous!

I used this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge to make a 40th Birthday card for my friend. I know it's hard to turn 40 (not that I'm there yet!!) so what better way then to say she's fabulous?!? :) Here's the sketch:

I tried using just plain kraft paper since I've been loving all the cards I've been seeing with kraft lately. But I'm just not a plain & simple girl - I had to spice it up with some ink "distressing". Then I decided to make a little gift box filled with her favorite candies - Mentos!
I made up this box because I wanted to fit 6 rolls of Mentos in it. It it came out pretty good - very impressed with myself - LOL!

  1. Oh how fabulous! Love the little Mentos box, how clever! You've made turning 40 a little less scary :)

  2. Love the box! The flowers with the buttons are so adorable too!

  3. Ooooo, that box is sooooo impressive!!! Yummo :>)
    BTW, you just need to embrace the kraft :>)

  4. Gorgeous Jen! I love the little box you made, too.
