... a special card for a special young lady...

I was asked by my cousin to make a card for her daughter who will be turning 13.  I knew the exact Stamping Bella stamp I would use... Ava loves to celebrate

I coloured her up with my Copics and restamped the cake to add again with double sided foam tape (the white layer is also popped up).

I love this Pebbles paper and I especially love the 1/4" strips at the bottom of each page so I took one off and decided to thread it through using one of my SU small slot punches.

I added Emilee's age with my MFT "by the numbers" die set on the front and her name on the inside was added with my Revolution font dies.


SUPPLIES USED:


Stamps:
Stamping Bella: Uptown Girl - Ava loves to celebrate

Paper:
Bella's Bestest paper, Pebbles & SU's Whisper White

Dies:
Memory Box - meridian border
MFT - mini rolled rose & by the numbers
Revolution - letters

Copics:
E000, 01, 02
E93, 95, 97, 08, 11
E35, 37, 57, 59
YR20, 21, 24
YG11, 67

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Extras:
May Arts polka dot ribbon, adhesive pearls, glue pen, glitter, sewing

I think I will make this card again for my niece who turns 10 in December - I know she would love it.  8)

Here's Friday's Sketch challenge if you'd like to participate.  Hope you can!!  You could win $20 in Bella Bucks so get your favorite Bella stamp out and try the sketch. 

Well as far as Sundays go, this has been a productive one (unusual for me).  Lots done... laundry, cleaning & cards.  I actually feel ready for the week!

Back soon,
Carla.

Isn't it nice to be so ready to face the week? I love being organised and rarely enjoy it! Your card is so nice. I would have loved getting one like this at 13, or 23, or 33, or ...(wait, let's stop! Lol!) Seriously, it is very cute and I am sure Emily will love it :) Have a great week!

What a darling card for any girl at any age. Your niece is going to be so proud to receive a card like this on her tenth birthday. Ten is such a magical age. I also know a certain young lady who would love this card for her upcoming 15th birthday. Each of your cards are such artistic creations.
