Sweet Sixteen

I just don't know where the last week has gone - I've been so busy making cards I haven't had time to post them! First world problems!

Here's a card I made for a colleague at work to give to her Granddaughter on her 16th birthday...

I've gone retro and used an old stamp I've had 7 or 8 years from Stamping Bella - I've only die cut the top part of the image as I've always felt her legs were far too skinny! The papers are also quite old - from the Piece of Cake collection by Dovecraft.

I've coloured the image using coordinating Promarkers and used a variety of fancy dies as borders. Finally I've used some flat backed pearls and two tiny die-cut hearts as embellishments - you can just see the hearts as they have been cut in the same brown colour as one of the papers.

I'm entering this into the challenges at:

Retro Rubber Challenge #117 - anything goes
