Happy 15th Birthday Megan!


This birthday card & present are for my oldest daughter, Megan.
Today is her 15th birthday. She's a beautiful, funny, bright, caring, loving and talented young lady and we're grateful she's in our lives!
Now onto the card.
I was inspired by the wrapping paper for the colors and this PPA#17 sketch here. The present image from Holiday Blitz fits perfectly in the 1 1/4 inch square punch. Then I layered that with the 1 3/8 inch square punch. I used the Happy Birthday image from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The Close to Cocoa flowers are punched out with the Trio Flower punch and a I added a dot with the white gel pen. Some 1/4 inch whisper white grosgrain ribbon is tied around the Close to Cocoa Prints DSP(now on the Clearance Rack for $3.99).
Finally, a designer brad from the flower assortment and two buttons from the Sherbet Designer Buttons finish it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Holiday Blitz and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Whisper white, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron and Close to Cocoa DSP
Inks: Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron
Accessories: 1/4 inch and 1 3/8 inch square punches, Trio Flower punch, 1/4 inch Whisper white grosgrain ribbon, Designer Sherbet Buttons, Designer Brads Flower Assortment, white gel pen
