Another birthday card

Hi Everyone, I have another birthday card today, I saw a card, that I loved, but didn't take notice of the blog, sorry, just copied the card to use the sketch shape as I love it. So thank you Jen Zeeb for inspiration.

This is my interpretation

It's for my Great Niece's 16th birthday, I added stitching with my little sewing machine that I bought for a bargain last year, I think I have used it twice, must get the tension right!!!!!!!

I added a cut out 16 on my Cricut, then dry embossed it with one of my new Tattered Lace borders, I added 3D gloss to the raised part, hope you can see it. I added Xcut punched mini flowers and a sentiment by Create with TLC.  The fab digi stamp by All dressed up Stamps I coloured in Photoshop.

Dp's by Lucy Hampton from her Old Rose kit, I got it in 2007! So glad I haven't deleted old files, I keep telling my son when he tells me to clear "stuff" off the 'puter I may need them, - proved, LOL.

You may wonder why I added the sentiment, and airplane?, well Millie's Dad has been promoted to China, and she and her Mum will moving over there, not long after her birthday and school exams.  Include some pink, - Yep!  Flowers - Yep!  Yep!


  1. Wonderful CASEing, your embossed '16' is such a great accent piece and that pink floral paper is stunning! big hugs :)

  2. Wonderful card and a terrific layout. Gosh, that's a HUGE move for a 16 year old to make xxx

  3. Great card for a 16 year old, I am sure she will treasure it as she embarks on a new life adventure.

  10. You've designed a perfect card for a 16 yr old! Loved the cricut numbers and the added detail with the embossing. The extra thought of the plane & sentiment is just so customized for the big adventure in your niece's future, and how much more special could this card be just for her! Well done on using this digi & making it so uniquely your own. TFS & Hugs
