flashback friday

Amy Tsuruta is hosting flashback friday. She wants us to flash back to the first card we posted. I gotta tell ya, it took me 45 minutes of searching to finally find it. Here on this post from March19, 2009.

Amy is giving us until August 20th at 11:59pm PDT to re-blog our first cards. Then she'll use a random # picker to pick a winner of some blog candy. How cool is she? Even if you don't win the candy, you win. Cuz how cool is it to see where you've been and how far you've come.

Wow. I have had my blog since December 19, 2007 and it took me that long to finally start making cards. Anyway, this card was made for two challenges. Papertake Weekly (include something edible) and 365 Cards (make a birthday card without words.)

This is one I would make again. Sort of. Now I would add some bling. Maybe lots of bling. I still like it.
