Birthday card for Hayley


I officially became the mother of a teenager today.  It seems like just yesterday I was brushing her hair into pig tails, buying everything in shades of pink, and holding her hand. Now she's grown into a beautiful young lady, except she won't be caught dead in anything pink, wears her hair in her eyes, and almost dies of humiliation from my public displays of affection. Aw...the joys of raising a teenage girl!

I made this card to celebrate Hayley's 13th birthday. Her favorite colors are green, blue and purple, so I used Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze (though for some reason it looks more like Cool Caribbean in the pic), and Perfect Plum. It's fun and spunky, just like her! 

Supplies used: Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze, Black and Whisper White cardstock, chipboard letter, white craft ink, Cuttlebug embossing folder, green glitter, heart punch, white gel pen, non-SU ribbon.

great card! I am amazed that my 7 y.0. is also in this same phase - no affection, pink is quickly becoming a NO color - and the hair is in the face or quickly thrown back with a headband...... sigh.... but I wouldn't change her spirit - it is wonderful!
