16 Birthday Wishes

I made this card for my daughter's friend, along with a banner and a yard sign.
Her Sweet 16 theme is dots, pink, black & white.


I used scraps from the banner. I think the pattern paper is Paper Studio.
The 16 is 7Gypsies stamps and the Wishes for you is a Studio G stamp from M's.

This is the yard sign made from a poster board, circles punched from the scraps leftover from the banner, and I cut 'Emma's 16' with the cricut using the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge.

Here's all the stuff waiting to go to the party..

Even the bag has scraps on it!
I used her initial and stuck the dots on. Inside that pink bag is a big zebra blanket I just know she'll LOVE. I hope she has a wonderful Sweet 16 !

This week has been crazy! Hopefully next week I can get a few things knocked off my "to make" list.
I picked up the Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge at M's the other day. Can't wait to get a chance to make some cuts from it. I'm still trying to figure out what to do for my ATC's.

ATC - Flowers


Last month 'flowers' was pulled out of the bucket at our stamp group.
I used a Stampabilities background stamp with black ink,
Studio G for the letters, inked the edges with green,
randomly traced the leaves with a startdust pen <3 ,
punched a label and cut it in half, punched the bottom edge
and added paper flowers.

They didn't come out like I wanted them to, I was wanting something with more of a "pop". Most of my ATC's lack color. I like black and creams and sparkle and usually stay in that whole area of my comfort zone. : ) But I have been on a blue and green kick lately, so I decided to do the flowers in blue. I could've done better, I just didn't take the time to. Usually, I'll plan first and make a few different ones and then choose one from those.

Next month is coffee or tea..hmmm
