Granddaughter's 15th birthday


This is for my Granddaughter's 15th birthday. I am not happy with the design, too top heavy ....I should have looked  for a sketch to follow. The big star was supposed to be lower down, but as I was deciding where to place it, I dropped it.... it there it stayed.....flippin foam pads are too sticky by half  sometimes, lol.

Everything is from my new Papermania Rose Garden paper pad and I love all of the papers.
I wanted to use  stars on this and cos I don't have a star die I did these by hand. The words are printed on to  one of the pink designs, edged with Ash Rose chalk inkpad and matted onto silver mirri.
I made the rose from another of the  papers in the pad and love the way it turned out.

I think we're all a little too self critical sometimes Irene and this is one of those times sweetie.
Your card is gorgeous, I love the papers and colours and please tell me how you made that rose, it's so beautiful.
I'm sure your grand-daughter will love it too, very girly!
