Happy 16th Birthday - Rachel!!!!

Today is Rachel's 16th birthday - Happy Birthday!!!!!  I started this card last week and then realized I had better get my act together as her special day was almost here!  I was so excited on how this card turned out!  I kept thinking about what type of card I wanted to make for her on this special day and when I saw the stamp set Number of Years, I knew it would be perfect for her card, as well as so many others.  This is going to be one of my favorite stamp sets.

I decided to make a center fold card.  I made it in Wisteria Wonder and layered the center folds in some scrap DSP.  I cut out the number 16 with the matching dies to this set and adhered them to a 3 1/2" circle of Whisper White I cut out with my spellbinders dies.  I layered this on a piece of Wisteria Wonder CS cut with my scalloped circle dies.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set, and I ended up using Perfect Plum ink as the Wisteria Wonder ink wasn't dark enough but I think it matched up pretty good.  I used dimensionals only on one side of the circle for the opening.

This is the inside of the card using sentiments from the same stamp set.  I just love how it turned out!

I had purchased some lavender envelopes from the Scrap Book Show the other week and decided to use the rest of the scrap DSP to decorate the flap.  I hope she likes it!  Besides spending time with her friends to celebrate, the family will be here to help celebrate as well. All the girls are out shopping for Prom dresses.  Rachel has hers but now comes the shoes!!  Oh boy!!  I hope the nasty weather stays away!  I actually had to turn our heat on last night.  No garden planted yet!!

Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah

What a great stamp set! I can see this being very useful. So pretty with the DP and the lavender. The envelope matches perfectly! Bet it's hard to believe she's 16 already.
