Happy 13th Birthday

I made this for my friends daughter who loves Taylor Swift.  I did a little research and discovered that Taylor's favourite colour is white although she has answered pink, purple and navy blue to the question too.  Also learnt that one of the guitars Taylor owns is covered in rhinestones so I tried to copy that on to the card.

So started with White Bazzill cardstock then some white pearlescent card that I have run through three of my embossing folders.  Victoria and Bloom Dots from Cuttlebug and Lattice from Stampin Up.  I coloured the Madyson image from Stamping Boutique with my Copic pens.  Photo below shows all the colours I used.  Still amazes me how many colours you can get on such a small image.  Added some pink bling around the image and Kindy Glitz to the guitar, a bit hard to see in the photo.  Finished off with the silver sentiment stickers and wonderful ribbon from my stash.

Woohoo....housework time now. :-)  No I am not seriously that happy about it but it needs to be done.  Wishing you all a great day and week.

    This card is POSH and the pearly papers and embossing make it look even more so. The ribbon is royal and the image and guitar are fab. The newly turned teenager will LOVE it.
