Sweet Sixteen Birthday


My niece is turning 16 next week! She's the second-youngest of the 9 cousins and this only makes me realize how quickly they've all grown up! I sent her this birthday card, and I hope she doesn't get a peek at my blog before the card arrives in her mail! Oops I think the photo is kind of crooked... I do seriously lack in the photographic skills department :-/

I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the Pink Carnation CS, ran the heart block paper thru my corrugator (after stamping the 16's in the blank squares), hand cut the cupcake base and frosting shapes, painted the frosting with CTMH Pearl Create-A-Shade paint, added colored rhinestones with a dab of crystal Stickles, the cherry on top is a larger acrylic rhinestone with a stick of black CS. 'Sweet' sentiment from Girly Girl, '16' from Doodle Alpha My Acrylix™ stamped in Crystal Blue ink. Precious Paisley background paper, mounted on a generic orange piece of CS, clear sparkles at the corners, all mounted on a 5 x 6.5 White Daisy card base.
Off to make some baby cards for my neighbor who just delivered a girl last week! Busting out the Petite Scalloped Circle Nestabilities that just arrived! YAY! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
*inky hugs*
