Fabulous 40 (and an embossing tip)

I made this card for a very dear friend of mine that will be celebrating her 40th birthday today.
I bought the Forever Young cartridge last year thinking that me and many of my friends will be turning 40 this year, and this cart just scream how we always feel young. This card is pretty simple but I love how it came up. I hope my friend likes it too.
For the inside I just print the text over that pearly paper and then embossed it! 

I have to say that I used to hate that paper because the ink delays hours while dries. BUT I figured out that if after print the text you add embossing powder and then heat it (with the heat gun) any text you print over the paper will be perfectly embossed and takes the card to another level. So that is my tip for you and I hope it works for you, if so, let me know! I would love to see what you can do with this.

I decided to make a little present for my friend too. So I made a Guest Book. 
I must say that it was not exactly my idea. It came from Paula Bee from Craft with Bee... She is one of the most talented crafters I've ever seen and I love to go for inspiration at her blog every time I can.
Well, here are some pics of the Guest book that matches my card and some of the internal pages.

Great card and guest book! I love the colors you used. I just picked that cartridge up at Michael's today. The bling on the numbers are a nice touch.
