Teenage Birthday

One of the cards I did yesterday was a card for a niece turning 14 on the 2nd January.  I really enjoy using my "The Greeting Farm" stamps for teenagers.   For this card, I chose to use a stamp from the "Sweet and Toxic" set.

Sweet and Toxic


I stamped the girl and used Copics to colour her in.  I trimmed around her, and mounted her onto some purple PP.  I used a scrap to stamp the Hero Arts Sparkle Clear set sentiment onto and used a small Spellbinders label to cut out.   The background chervon card is from a DCWV mat pack.  The flower is made with some punches and blue paper.  The glittery ribbon under it was rescued from the Christmas Crackers we had at lunch on Christmas Day.... I knew that my family now understand I'm a crafter, as they saved all the ribbon and bits that I could use.

 This is now on it's way to Lisa.  I know she doesn't visit here, so I am safe showing you.... but the other card I made for my Mum's birthday, will have to wait...

Today, our weather has turned cold and windy, so have been inside getting ahead with my design cards for Mygrafico.  Got three weeks done.  I've also been adding cards to my Pinterest boards... so many beautiful works of art out there.  My Tim's Tags have stalled as I got to Day 6 and didn't like it... must move on!

Hope the rest of your week goes well...
Take Care

A lot going on in this card Dawn, when you think you have seen all the elements, you pick up the skull things in her pigtails!
Great card.
