Daughters Birthday

SUO Challenge 23
For the Kids

I clicked over to anther favorite site (SUO Challenges)for challenges that I like and wow I couldn't believe it. This week the challenge is for "The Kids". We had to make a child's card. You see its my daughters 12th birthday on Saturday so I already had to make a card and it well fits in with this challenge. So I sat down last night after everyone went to bed, more me time at my craft desk, love it....hehe and made Zoe her card.

I went with a favorite colour of hers in Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla.
Now which set would be best for a 12 year old. Mmm Totally Tess is perfect for her, well I think, anyway this is what I went with.

I stamped Tess and used my aqua painters and coloured her clothes and hair. I then set about and did some fussing cutting (Oh don't you love fussy cutting). I also used the Lots Of Tags die to make the mirror, with some Brushed Silver Metallic paper. Another favorite is the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and the crimper tool. I used the saying from "Bring on the Cake" stamp set and I have stamped it with elegant eggplant and then versamarked it and with the Heat n Stick powder I used the dazzling diamonds to add some bling. (Bling a girls favorite). Put it altogether and well there you have it.

Here is my card.
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla, Brushed Silver
Stamp Sets: Totally Tess, Bring on the Cake
Inks: Elegant Eggplant, basic Black, Early Espresso
Tools: Crimper, Square Lattice Embossing folder, Lots of Tag Die
Aqua Paitners, Blush Write Marker
