Sweet Sixteen

My best mate, Pig, asked me if I would make a special birthday card for her stepdaughters 16th birthday.  Eeeek!  No pressure.

Pig chose the image she wanted me to use, with instructions that the cat had to be black and white, like their cat, Mudge, and to use lots of pink and sparkle .......


Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image: LOTV Me And My Cat
Colouring Medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers & Cardstock:  8x8 300gsm smooth white PDA card, First Editions: Love Letters
and Sweet Owls
Sentiment:  LOTV Circular Sentiment
Extras: Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch, gold edged holographic sparkle transparent peel-off borders, gold peel off borders, Anita's Outline Stickers for the numbers, Nestabilities dies



I've also used a sheet of the First Editions on the inside with a white central panel and a Happy 16th Birthday message.

This is the first time I've used an 8x8 card base and it felt enorrrrrrrrrrrrrmous!

Hugs, Sxx
