13th Birthday

Over at Cute Card Thursday challenge 62 is 'A bit o' Bling'
I just love a bit, or even a lot of bling, so this challenge is a must for me :-)

This is for my granddaughter's friend and as you can see is 13 today.
G/daughter is just like her mother, leaving things to the last minute.
I had a call from her at 8.15 this morning asking me to make a card for her friend. The brief was - pink, sparkle, 13 and her name. This is the result after faffing around for ages going through all my pink paper. We all know how many different shades there are of any colour!!
I had to find paper in my stash because both of my printers are telling me they are low on ink so I didn't want to print more off.

I made the mistake of stamping my lovely Gorjuss Girl on the wrong paper and it didn't colour very well. Ah well, lesson learned. I just hope it is not inspected too closely.

I had already made the flower and added some Glamour Dust and a gold bow from my bit box.
Die cut name, Fiskars lace punched trim, some gems and a computer generated sentiment to finish it off.

Thank you very much if you are kind enough to leave a comment. I appreciate them all.

My apologies that I haven't visited for a while Irene, real life is tending to get in the way at the mo. I've thoroughly enjoyed looking at your latest cards though and they're all lovely
