Happy 13th Birthday Nellie

It was raining all day Sunday so I had nothing better to than craft the day away.  I so enjoyed it as I have not sat at my craft desk since mid June.  I made this card for my niece who turns 13 today...yes, another teenager in there world. :-)

I wanted it to be girly but not pink and pretty since she is a teenager now.   I found this Penny Black girl sticker in my collection.  She must have been holding balloons at one stage in her left hand but they had been cut off so I balanced some presents on her hand.  Firstly, I adhered the sticker to white card stock then hand cut around her, attached her to the card with some 3D foam.  I layered up some papers from my stash, using one of my Spellbinder border dies along the bottom edge.  Again used my fantastic Elizabeth Craft Design - Birthday die.  I am just in love with how easily they cut.  Finished the card with little banner using the scraps of paper from the background.

Wishing you all a terrific day and thanks for visiting. :-)


  1. Love the banner and the beautiful Happy birthday die cut sentiment. I got an Elizabeth craft Happy New year recently and am waiting to use it on a card!!
