Grandaughter's 13th


This is for my beautiful Grandaughter who will be 13 on Friday. A family friend has a photography business and often uses M as a model for her portfolio and flyers. She can look very sophisticated for her age but is still the typical teenager, thank goodness! although my DD will not agree with that statement!!!

The photo I used is one of some taken recently, and I altered it to sepia because I thought it suited what I had in mind for the card. I have CB numbers but as I tend to do things the hard way, I cut the 13 by hand because I wanted a bigger, skinnier font and used a stretched Black Chancery in Word Art. I rubbed on some sparkly powder that I've had for years and recently found at the back of a drawer.

A close up of the little embellishment I made for the bottom of the card.
* I have added a pink organza bow to the top RH corner because I thought it lacking something!!

Thank you for visiting and any comment you wish to make will be really appreciated.
