Sweet 16

Well it's a snowy Wednesday morning, so glad that I do not have to go out and I can stay in the house all warm with Peanut!

So I have my cousin's Sweet 16 next weekend and I wanted to make her a dazzling card in honor of this milestone! Because I had this vision of lots of sparkle and bows and so I think it just threw me off cause nothing was coming together. I was having issues with the layout and colors and so on.

I knew I wanted to use the light blues cause her color theme is "Tiffany" Blue. So i stated with a card base of Soft Sky and White. My DP is by Heidi Grace called It's My Party and I just picked it up yesterday at AC Moore. I decided to stamp "Sweet 16" on a Label 9 Nesstie, sponged soft sky on the inside part and then embossed it with my Swiss Dots CB folder. The final touch was two tiny twinkles by Taylored Expressions. My sentiment is a combo using the "sweet" from So Very by SU and the "16" from a number set I bought in the dollar bin a while back.

The panel under the sentiment is again a piece of Soft Sky and I used my scalloped edge punch on both sides. I layered another piece of White that again I embossed with Swiss Dots. I used two ribbons, my soft sky and white taffeta and created a double bow for extra pop. I also created my own sugar coated brads by taking two white brads and coating them in dazzling diamonds for birthday bling. In the end the sparkling brads and double bow really helped to make it fancier and fun so I am pleased with the final product!
