Hey stampin' friends! I made this birthday card for my daughter, Hannah! Today she turned 15 years old and I can hardly believe it! Every year I make her a special birthday card but this year I had to pick an image that was a little more grown up, a little bit more age appropriate. Something fitting for a 15 year old...eeekkkk!!!! I LOVE the Wendy Burns - All Dressed Up girls and this image called Love to Shop was perfect for Hannah's card! I'm entering this card in 3 challenges...Color Throwdown # 299, Sketch Saturday # 316 and All Dressed Up # 17...to use your favourite All Dressed Up image.
I went looking for some colour inspiration and this CTD299 swatch was perfect...Hannah will love this colour combo!
I used MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock in Razzle Berry, Blu Raspberry and Whip Cream.
Then I needed a sketch...they have a great sketch over at Sketch Saturday #316...and All Dressed Up just happens to be the sponsor this week with a fabulous All Dressed Up Prize! I flipped the sketch, took some liberties and added a few more layers and embellies...I just couldn't resist ;)
I made the cardbase 6X6 from Kraft cardstock and used BasicGrey Fresh Cut 6x6 papers and matted in MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock in Razzle Berry, Blu Raspberry and Whip Cream. I used a few more layers of papers than the sketch called for but I couldn't resist the pretty BG Fresh Cut papers. I cut the tag for the long panel with the Pierced Traditional Tags STAX and instead of a star I added a few hearts cut with the Staggered Heart Border Die-namics cut from some sparkly cardstock.
I printed the sweet All Dressed Up - Love to Shop Digi image and coloured it up with my Copics, cut the image out with the Bracket Mini Album STAX Die-namics and left the image in the die and inked with Spun Sugar and Lipstick Pink Distress ink. To embellish I added a few YNS Gumdrops and some pink AC Hemp Cord.
I finished the inside of the card too...I added a shadow image of one of the Love to Shop girls and stamped a sentiment from the MFT WBD Cupcake Cutie Stamp set, stamped in Blu Raspberry Premium Dye Ink on Whip Cream Heavyweight Card Stock cut out with the Pierced Fishtail Flags STAX.
Thanks SO much for stopping by and having a wee peek at the card I made for Hannah's 15th Birthday and for the Color Throwdown Challenge # 299, Sketch Saturday Challenge # 316 and the All Dressed Up Challenge # 17...use your favourite All Dressed Up image.
