Girly Seventeen

It's Saturday again and that means it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. Brenda is hosting this week and she created a wonderful mood board for your inspiration. It's an optional theme with Anything Goes as the other option so hopefully you'll join in with us for your chance to be entered into the prize drawing or to be selected as a top pick.

The mood board is below and I was inspired by the pretty dress in the top corner to use this image and by the shades of pink. Plus I thought it would make a perfect birthday card for my baby girl who recently turned 17! Time really does fly!!

The stamp is Penny Black's Patisserie, perfect for feminine cards. I colored her with Stampin Up and Distress inks and added a dotted stencil design to the background. A retired stitched die from Whimsy Stamps was used to cut it out. 

On the right side of the card I used a birthday background stamp from My Favorite Things. The heart die is by Penny Black, I used some natural jute twine behind the 17 which I generated on the computer. I do have a number stamp set but found them to be too large so I used the computer instead. Sentiment is from the Penny Black set Sprinkles and Smiles.
