Nicole's Sweet 16

I have a good friend who loves House Mouse stamps (Hi Deb!) - so when her lovely daughter turned 16 there really was no other choice but to use one of their stamps on the card. I had also told Leigh at 'Cause I'm Me that with her and Jean's gorgeous House Mouse cards I was almost afraid to post one - LOL. She sent me an email letting me know she'd love to see one on my blog, so this is for her too.

I decided to make it teenage friendly with some bright colours and funky flowers. I used Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and Lavender Lace. Of course my Cuttlebug got a work out too - I cut all the flowers and numbers using Cuttlebug Dies, and the main image was cut and layered using my Nestabilities. The background was also embossed using my Divine Swirls folder. I blinged it up with some coloured rhinestones and Dazzling Diamonds frosting on the cupcake.

I was really happy with how it turned out - and got a lovely text from the birthday girl - so it was smiles all around!!!

My heavens Debbie!! I will have to watch it here - I am in grave danger of losing my crown LOL! Seriously though - I love your card, love the image, the funky colours and flowers and the great shading you have used on the cupcake!! Can't wait to see more Mousie cards from you!! I have been slack - no very busy for the last few days so no stamping - waaaah. I hope to meet you at convention!!

Debbie, I love this card. You've done well. The colours are perfect for a teenager and so are the flowers.
The stamp is fabulous too. I like the way you've done your patty case colours and the flame from the candle.

Terrific Debbie !! I've got a sweet 16 card to make this year too- Hope mine turns out as "funky" as yours!!

Another fantastic card Debbie - this is perfect for a young lady of 16. The colours are lovely and bright, the little mice are so cute and your embossed panel and scalloped circles add to the WOW factor. You're amazing!!
