Card for my Em's Birthday - 15!!!

No challenge but still my first card for 2010 - and again it's for my youngest daughter, Emily, who's 15 tomorrow! I stamped the image on watercolour paper with Distress Inks, then masked it and stamped over with the crackle background (Crafty Individuals) with Old Paper Distress Ink. The sentiment is from Autumn Leaves and the papers, which I've distressed are from DCWV Latte Stack. I got this from Quixotic Paperie, as I did the tulle. Rest of goodies are from my stash.

And here's the lovely lady herself, we went up to Oxford Street today and hit the sales for her birthday pressies - she bought this gorgeous little number from Top Shop to wear for a 'party' ( of 10) that she's having at the moment with her friends!! Ain't she just adorable!! Oh to be that slim again- not that I ever was!!

Your card is beautiful, Julie, as is my Goddaughter! But she should smile for the camera - she is even more beautiful when she smiles - it increases her face value! Loadsalove, Lesley
