Something Sweet

Hi Everyone! I have another quick post for you today, I am off to my Mom's to help her start to get ready for a big move from her home in Chicago. She has lived in this house for close to 40 years, and has a lot of stuff/boxes to sort thru before she moves her stuff and such closer to me and my Sister! Yay!! So that is my plan for today. This week is also my Beautiful Step-daughter's 16th birthday. Boy time sure has flew by... With that said I needed a Sweet 16 card. I looked at my stamps, and found that I had never once used the set Birthday Bakery from the last catalog. (how I managed not to ever ink it up, is still a little baffling to me!). I checked out Split coast for a little inspiration, and found an adorable card made by leighastamps which is actually a CASE from Di Gibbs. So Anyhoo, here is my version -

I just changed up the papers, and the colors slightly.(her card was perfect, so why mess with it!") I used my billboard alphabet for the "Sweet", and went over them with some crystal Effects for a little bit of depth. I used my SU markers to color the images, and added a little bit of crystal effects to the cherries on top. I think it turned out super CUTE! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
