Teen Birthday

I have a mental block when it comes to teenagers cards, especially girls, so when my mate Samantha asked for one to be made for Abbi, a friend's daughter, who was 15 yesterday, my heart kinda sank a little bit - but, never being one to turn down a challenge, I had a go anyway.

I had no ideas as to what colours to use but knew that I just had to use a Gorjuss Girl and this particular one "Sitting" was crying out to be stamped. The rest of the card just sort of fell into place. I coloured her with a mix of Promarkers and Ciao Copics.

Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girls "Sitting" stamp
7Gypsies 5th Avenue Journey Collection papers
The H and B of Happy Birthday are from a clear set of Hero Arts letters and the appy irthday are from an unbranded set I bought from Create & Craft
Woodward flower punch
Purple glitter paper and gems from stash

Thanks for popping by.
