What fun to have been invited to one of our sweet young ladies in our church to celebrate turning 16. This card actually went together backwards. I was under the wire creating this and had absolutely NO idea what I was going to do. I decided that I wanted to do it in pink and needed to make sure that there would be a nice pocket for the gift card. So I started on the INSIDE of the card! I chose Pink Pirouette card stock and inside the package were some pieces that were embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I made the pocket out of the white paper, layered the PP on to and then made a small piece of white to layer on top of that. It looked blasé, so I added two flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and I have some pretty pale pink pearls. Loved how that turned out. Then I closed the card! OY!!!! Where do I go from here. I knew that I wanted to use the numbers from the Alphabet Simple Numbers set of dies in silver glitter paper. So I just brought the INSIDE of the card to the OUTSIDE! I am very pleased with how this card turned out. Now I have to think of another one for another one of our sweet young ladies who has no idea she is having a party! She's one of my adopted granddaughters (her mom adopted me as her mom)! I LOVE IT!!!!!!! Let's go see. . . .
