A 17th Birthday!

Our middle daughter recently celebrated her 17th Birthday. She is a cheeky one and often has the same type of responses. One of her favourites is, "YOUR FACE".  I don't really get it most of the time, but sometimes I can throw it as well as she can. In honour of her cheekiness, I made Amy this birthday card.
I started with Smoothie cardstock and  Hopscotch patterned paper. The smaller piece of patterned paper is from retired Lucy and I stamped with Love Ya Silly; Your Own Kind of Wonderful; and Puppy Party. I used Crystal Blue and Black ink. The shapes were cut with Art Philosophy and one I used a stitching die from Simon Says.

I added Smoothie Baker's Twine; new Sequins and Stardust Glitz. I also drew accents with my Black Journaling Pen.
