Happy Birthday to my Little Sis!

Well, a late happy birthday. Ironically, I gave her this card early, but I am sharing it with you all almost a month after her birthday! Just goes to show how on top of things I am! HaHa!

My sister turned 11 this year (there is a slight age difference!), and I thought now is the perfect time for a slightly grown up card. After all, she is getting to the age of extreme girliness. Tiger Beat, Hannah Montana, bengal bracelets, and all things fashiony are her kind of thing!

Supplies: Martha Stewart Number Stamps (which my mom picked up on a super good clearance for me at Michaels!), Autumn Leaves Springtime Flourishes stamps, ColorBox Chalk Ink in Olive Green Pastel, Prima Flowers, Rhinestones, White Cardstock, CuttleBug Swiss Dots embossing folder, and Fiskar's Scalloped border punch

My favorite thing about this card is that it turned out really pretty while being monochromatic. And honestly, the most difficult part of the card was lining up the dotted outlines on the number and getting them to match the solid numbers!

The quote is printed off of my computer, and I love how well it fits a girly girl! I stamped the background pieces with the flower flourish from the Autumn Leaves set, and for the polka dot piece, I first covered the CuttleBug embossing folder with ink, put my piece of paper in it, and ran it through my CuttleBug and voila! Super easy and shabby chic!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you have a great day!
