Birthday Girl!

A quick CAS card for a teenager's birthday to share with you all today - (again a post typed before I went off to sunnier climes and quickly updated!)

Asked to make a card in a hurry (less than 24 hours) and Mr Mojo disappeared off into the sunset so had to settle for a quick digi from All Dressed Up.

Love these stamps though - this one is from the 'Love to Shop' set and thought it was a reasonable choice for a very pretty grown up young lady of 15!

Printed both image and sentiment direct onto linen card and coloured our grown up girlie with Promarkers.
Matted the coloured image onto some orange card and then added a couple of banners from the cut off scraps of the orange sheet, running both scraps through two different embossing folders and then shoved the teeniest bit of orange card left into a heart punch and stuck above the sentiment!

The spotty ribbon and button from my stash.
Am sorry the pic isn't as sharp as it should be -don't know why.... think the really 'right between the eyes orange' of the ribbon and card overshadowed everything else!

Thanks for being first to post and what a lovely card too. Sometimes CAS is best and this just shows it to be so. The young lady will love it too I'm sure. I like the cardstock you printed on it makes the image soft. Thanks for linking up with us over at myshericrafts this time around.

I think your mojo is just fine as this is an awesome card! Especially for a 15 year old, but would work fabulously for any woman. I am so loving the image and the way you colored her. I also love the orange banners and ribbon, the orange just makes this card pop! Hugs, Brenda

A great card that any teenage girl would be happy to receive. The different embossing on the banners adds texture to the card and the bow and button finish it off nicely. Sally D.x.
