Blooming Sixteen!

Hi Everyone

I was asked by my friend to make a card for her to give to her Daughter who is turning Sixteen.  She was getting really fed up with not being able to get a card in the shops with Daughter and 16 on it.  So here is what I came up with and I am pleased to say she loved it!

I used an image from Artidoodles called Beautiful Blossom and I coloured her with ProMarkers.  I used a Bazzill Basics Green Card for my Base/Frame Layer and the Patterned Papers are from a Wild Rose Studio Paper Pack.  The "To a Very Special Daughter" Sentiment is from Stampingallday and the other Sentiment I typed up in Word on my PC.  I added Purple Lace and a Lilac Satin Bow and finished with Purple Pearl Gems.
