Happy Birthday Sweet 16 !

Hello again :) 

Today is a very special day , it's my Baby Girl's Birthday , Lulu is 16 !!! I can barely believe it myself !

Well of course a special birthday deserves a very special birthday card and I had grand plans to make this card something that Lulu could keep to remind her of this day.

I selected my favourite My Minds Eye Miss Caroline papers and some deep rose pink CS ...the card is a Cascade Card and after perusing lots of tutorials across the WWW I decided this was by far the easiest to follow..... give it a go it really is easy and so effective. I had lots of fun decorating the card with lots of punched and die cut flowers and butterflies and some very special '16' bling ;)

Of course I found it much easier to do with my brand new 'go to' tool the Simply scored board from Stampin' Up! and matching diagonal plate which I got from my lovely SU Demo and friend Karen Curd


This handy little bit of kit made measuring and scoring the card a breeze and meant I could make a gorgeous coordinating envelope too !! Believe me if you like making cards you need this !!

See how perfectly it fits :) 

Hope you enjoyed looking at my card as much as I enjoyed making it !
