Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #230 Inspired by a Decade

Hello Wonderful Crafty Friends!

I hope you are all well! I'm super excited, as this is my Birthday week! I turn 30 on Thursday!  I also must report I survived the first week back to only math classes! Time management has never been my greatest feature, but man I am on it now! It's crazy how I have multiplied my responsibilities by at least 3, and yet I am more productive. It's sad how bad it was before. I had a few snares along the way this week, but all in all it was a success. We did lose power Sunday for about 9 hours. That's no fun when your cutter needs internet and electricity and all your homework must be turned in online. I'm still perky though.

My card for this week's challenge at the Die Cuttin' Divas is really a reflection of my mood lately. The challenge is a decade challenge, where you make a project based on a particular decade. Let me tell you, I am never anything less than amazed by the creativity of my fellow design team divas! They have some really fantastic decade cards. I decided to do mine on the 80's! The decade I was born in. I was really inspired by the clothes my mom used to dress me in. I love the crazy patterns and the vivid colors! The sunglasses also scream 1980's to me.

The solid colored paper is from Colorbok and the pattern is from The Paper Studio. I felt the patterned paper really made the card feel true to the 80's. I also downloaded a font that I thought looked like it fit well. The sunglasses are from the Cricut store.

This card makes me happy and excited, which is what I think of when I think of the 80's. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do. I am really excited to see all of your decade inspired projects over at the Die Cuttin' Divas. Don't forget the die cut :) I wish you all a wonderful week , and thank you so much for reading!!
