Seize the Birthday - A Feminine Sweet 16 Birthday Card

Hello, friends!  I'm here today to share a card I made for my daughter's friend who just turned sixteen.  I'm sharing this in the current Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" Challenge going on through November 17th.

I have a son who is sixteen and a daughter who is fifteen, and many of their friends are having "Sweet Sixteen" birthday parties.  (I think I will be making MANY birthday cards this year!)

Here is a feminine version of a "Sweet Sixteen" birthday card I made using number dies from Papertrey Ink and a "sweet" die by Serendipity Stamps.  I inlaid the die cuts and used red glitter paper for some shine.  The card base is dry embossed patterned paper and rubbed with sand paper to reveal its white core.  I'm pleased with how it turned out!

I'm also sharing my card in the current Virginia's View Challenge #20: All About Textures.  The red glitter paper, the red Stickles around the die cut, and the sanded, dry-embossed card panel all add texture to this otherwise flat card.

I'll be back soon to share a masculine version of a "Sweet Sixteen" birthday card, too!

Thanks for stopping by,
