I can't believe it!

Well, my little baby niece turned 18 last week! (insert sobs here!) Sadly she lives 1,000 miles a way and I haven't seen her since Christmas, but I did make her this card. She loves pink, or at least she did 6 months ago! This card started out very different because the base and the layers were from a card I was supposed to make at card club with my upline, but I didn't really like the stamp set and decided I would use my own, and when I got home I knew I had to use a bella for her card! It's perfect! Stamps are Stamping Bella's ipodabella and Happy Birthday, SU's Brushstroke Numbers and Perfect Fit Stampin' Around Wheel; Cardstock is Confetti White and Pretty in Pink; Ink is Pretty in Pink, Bashfully Blue, Barely Banana, Creamy Carmel and Copic Skin White. I used a Silver Glitter Gel Pen for the Ipod; I used Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds for the "fur" and misc flowers and bling brads. The white cardstock with the Bella is distressed with distressing tool. I just loved this card, almost hated to send it out, but, what am I going to do with a card that says happy birthday and 18? I hope she liked it (and got it!)
Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! We did absolutely nothing on the 4th of July! (Well I worked on more swaps for convention!) It was great (except my hubby was still recovering from an awful cold he had).

The card is cute!!! Hubby's nieces are going to be 18 next year I think and every time he sees them he just can't believe it.

She loved it! You did a great job with it. I told her to frame it and she agreed :)) I can't believe she's 18 either :( I had a hard time with it knowing my 'baby' isn't a baby anymore. But it helps she's here with her Mommy, even if only for a visit. Great job Sis!
