Here is the card I made for my daughters sweet 16 birthday. As soon as I saw this image, I thought of Theresa Lauren~ carefree, happy and full of hope and wonder.
Of course, dont forget she IS a teenager, but that just makes me more aware of just how "typical" she is. Her favorite colors are pink and purple, so that was the color scheme. It is an easel card, which is my current favorite type of card style. Its just such a beautiful finished look, it will probably be my favorite for a long time to come.
The image is a digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil. I resized her to be big enough to fit the 6 by 6 inch card.
This is a view of the card opened up as an easel.

The carstock is Stampin Up, the patterned paper with the plaid has no name on it, and the floral is from a company called Stemma and the pattern is Charlie. I have had it quite a while. In fact when we used to go to a now closed scrapbook store in Wilmington, I used to let TT pick out a few sheets for herself. This is one of those sheets.

She is colored with Copic Markers. Her pretty pink satin ribbon is from Offray. Pink ink is Blush Chalk Ink.
Pearls are from Michaels and made by Recollections.
I used Stampin Up Crystal Effects on her balloons to give them a shine. Before that I used a White Sigmo Pen to highlight them a bit.

I had to computer generate the inside sentiment.
Below is a view of the whole inside of the card.

She was very excited to receive this card, and very happy to be "16".
Many thanks for stopping by...
