sweet 16



My Niece is turning 16 next month and throwing a big party. she wanted some invites in pink silver and black. So she came over last night and this is our prototype. Used 2 different sets of stampin up stamps and one from ctmh. The flower is from Delight in life and the background is from Baroque Motif.

Stamped in black on the pink, its really a lot pinker looking in real life. Stamped on silver paper with black the flower (120 of them) Cut out all the flowers (he he had her and grandma doing that part) once assembled I pop dotted one of the flowers and added iciles to the flowers they look like little jewels in real life. Then stamped the words out in silver encore.

for the invite person we will be putting vellum imprinted from the computer and tie it on with a bow either silver or pink organza whichever we can find.

she was very excited about doing this and talked all night long. LOL I don't have any girl children only a boy about to graduate high school so that was COMPLETELY different for me. I think my husband left the room about 1/2 into the whole thing.

Beautiful card! I just found you on SCS! I noticed your Westie Avatar...I have a westie too! Hope the party is a fun one! Everyone will love the invites. My daughter is turing 18 next month, and graduating from High School so I have to start getting those invites out. This is a great inspiration! Hi to Duncan!
