My son is attending one of those "over the top" Sweet 16 parties this weekend. He's been going to rehearsals to learn how to Waltz, and will be wearing a vest and bow tie with his suit selected by the birthday girl. So of course I wanted to make an "over the top" birthday card for the young lady. The Waltzingmouse "You're Lovely" set seemed like the logical choice! I revisited an older card I made in grey, teal and yellow and remade it in different shades of pink - to match the invitation she sent.
I stamped the frame in Momento London Fog, and then masked it. Then I stamped the dress in the window. Next, I stamped the dress in Stampin' Up! Pink Pirouette on pink patterned paper twice and fussy cut it. The first cut is glued directly on the tag, and the second is slightly higher on pop dots. Here's the finished card..
I hope she likes it... and here is a flash back to the original ..
Thanks for having a look!
