Sweet 16

ahhhhh! To be turning 16! That day is too far gone for me! But my niece will be turning 16 on Leap Day! (don't look at this Meghan!) So since I was up before dawn this morning I decided to stamp while the boys were asleep.
I love this image from Stamping Bella and knew it would be perfect for the card. All other supplies and images are Stampin' Up!
The base card is Bashful Blue and I stamped the background with a stamp from Sprinkles with Bashful Blue ink. There is a layer of Old Olive and then a layer of the Summer Picnic DSP (can you tell I love this paper!) The image is colored with Prisma/Gamsol and then layered with Real Red and then the left side is punched with the ticker corner punch. The red ribbon is from my trip to the Offray ribbon outlet. The 16 is stamped with a retired set, Doodle Numbers and punched with a circle punch and then layered in Real Red with the Scallop Circle Punch. I stamped "sweet" from Everyday Flexible Phrases. And the finishing touch was Stickles for the headlights! I love how this turned out!
