Turning 16

March 22 my Baby Girl, Hailey Brooke, turns 16... can you believe it???  I sure can't... especially when I was in the passenger seat and SHE was DRIVING!!!!!  **gasp**

I wanted to make her a super special birthday card using her FAVE (right now) Giraffe... I grabbed my MFT Sassy n Sweet stamp set and got to work, then tossed to the can, then got to work, then tossed to the can... Lemme tell ya this card was SO hard to complete, it was SO awesome... IN MY MIND... but this FOURTH version... I really like, so I'm stickin with it!!!! 

I had stamped the "giraffe" print, was the cheetah that I colored in, then decided to use glaze pen on the spots only, didn't like that so inked the whole thing with Rich Cocoa Memento ink then embossed the whole things, there is a hint of the spots still showing which is kinda cool... I'm talking about on the "16" part which are numbers I die cut while at Corinna's house... The DP is some I got from I {heart} Papers awhile ago and added some of the flourishes from the MFT SnS Set... the ribbon was from my Kate (C_S), different pieces of the SnS DieNamic were used the sentiment was distressed with TH Inks.  The roses were a combination of types that I glued together.  While cleaning out and organinzing (again) my room I found these paper leaves in my stash and grabbed those...a bit of blingage on the frame and DONE!!!!  all in all this was a 4 hour card!!!  LMAO  Oh but I must empty my trash can now!!!!   Have an AWESOME Day and thanks for popping in!!!  :)

This is awesome! I would loved to have seen the discards though! Did she love her card? I guess that would be weird to drive them for 16 years, and then suddenly, they are driving YOU! I can happily wait for that moment to come! ;) I hope she enjoyed her special day!
