Granddaughter's 16th

********************

Oh gosh!! my lovely granddaughter is 16 on Monday - it is scary how the years have flown.
DD is taking her to see Strictly Come Dancing in London as a birthday treat which explains the BG paper. I made this from an image - courtesy of Google - in my graphics prog.
I hand cut a star and mounted it on to some silver mirri with foam tape - the star sentiment is also popped up with foam pads.



I got an 'interesting' mottled effect on the silver mirri by running it through the CB with some sandpaper.




I had to give her some flowers and sparkle. The flower is made from some of the many die-cuts kindly given to me by my friend Kym when we met up last Saturday and the rest from WOC.
I cut and glittered the flourish some time ago for another project and it didn't suit - fortunately it is just right for this one. Shame the sparkle on the  flowers doesn't show here.
