Sweet 13!

My niece is turning 13 this week! Happy Birthday Sydney! Connor was born on June 16th, his cousin, Garrett 6/5, and Sydney 7/24., all the same year. It was fun for my sister, sister-in law, and I to all be pregnant at the same time, and even more so to watch them grow over the years. Hard to believe they are now TEENAGERS! Oh the fun to come!
So this is what I came up with for Sydney's card. It is all done with the new cardstock and designer paper that will be coming in the new catalog in August! The base of this is Pink Pirouette, with a layer of Kiwi Kiss, and the designer paper is called Bella Rose. I also used Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red re-inkers to color the flower from the Pretties Kit. The ribbon is something I picked up at Tuesday Morning a while back. It was a large spool with several different types of ribbon for a few bucks!
I also did something similar to this and sent it into Stampin' Up! for the August contest. It was a birthday card to celebrate SU's 20th birthday.
