another birthday card!

we are going thru a run of birthdays at the moment - I had two on the weekend and today is my brothers partners birthday - you may remember the 'Jackie' card a few weeks ago. And then on Thursday my son's girlfriend Lisette has her 16th birthday. So today's card is her birthday card from us - she isn't a girly girl so no 'sweet 16 things' or flowers, or shoes or stuff like that. But I wanted a card that showed her strong personality and her desire to succeed. She is an amazing author so that's why I choose the DSP from the Naturals Family pack with the writing. Plus the sentiment is exactly what we would wish for her.

I used my favourite stamp set Word Play again - so loving that stamp, esp. when stamped in different colours. The colours on this is In Colour Pear Pizazz and Early Espresso, with Whisper White. The new embossing folder adds great texture to the card too, along with the Early Espresso thin ribbon and tiny pearls.

I could of done a 'Beatles' card as she is a big FAN bit that was going to be a huge challenge LOL
I have ANOTHER friends birthday on Thursday too so hopefully I can post her card on here tomorrow as I posted it to her today so she should get it tomorrow hee hee - can't have her seeing it on line before in real life! lol
