Anyway, the reason for the title is that my baby turns 17 today. Where on earth all those years have disappeared to, I just don't know ... sigh! In just a few months she'll be graduating high school and then be off somewhere and I'll be left with an empty nest and ...... argh! (breathe, breathe!)
Alright, to avoid an existential crisis happening here, let's move on to the card! I wanted to combine a few elements; to wit, her love of the colour green, her preference for red and white polka dots, a teen's fascination with making parents spend tons of money on clothes, and ... hmm, no, that's it. So here is what I came up with at the almost-very-last-minute (which I define as the day before the birthday as opposed to the night before the birthday, which is definitely very-last-minute):
Cute, huh? Yup, it's so cute it's worthy of a comment don't you think?
- stamps - Uptown Girls Posh has a Present (Stamping Bella)
- card - cucumber crush, whisper white, real red, watercolour
- other - sponge, aqua painter, Dimensionals, green satin ribbon (stash), dots and stripes decorative mask, rhinestones, markers
The dotty background is sponged using the decorative mask, a sponge and real red ink onto whisper white card. I love the soft look it has, it almost gives the impression of flocking (well, it does in real life but maybe not so much in the photo). And the sentiment on the inside is perfect for her because she definitely has her own individual fashion style:
So now that you've seen the card I can go back to my crisis. Oh! and don't forget to leave me some comment love!
Thanks for dropping by.
