A Different Kind of Challenge

Today my 'baby' turns 16 ... a challenge on so many levels!  

She is a great girl, and in herself not that much of a challenge, I am so proud of the young lady she is growing into.  The challenging part comes from the age and all that it brings - social expectations, a relaxing of rules while still maintaining boundaries, learning to drive (though that will primarily be hubby's challenge lol), and just the support needed for 16 year olds these days - maintaining that balance between mother and friend.  

Here is the card I made for her.  I used some of her favourite products, firstly the rose image from Fifth Avenue Floral, she loves this stamp set, particularly the rose.  Her other favourite on the card is the new In-Colour Island Indigo, which I paired with Pool Party, lastly is glitter - what girl doesn't like glitter!!!  I used my new alphabet die to cut out the letters and numbers and embossed them into the extended bookmark with the square lattice die.  The "16" I cut out of adhesive sheet and applied super fine glitter, ideally I would have used the new Sticky Sheets as they would have held the glitter better, but sadly had none on hand!  I hope she likes it and has a wonderful 16th Birthday.

Happy Stamping

    You have every right to be proud of her, she IS as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
