Alicia's 15

My beautiful, brown haired, brown eyed baby is turning 15!  Her name is Alicia and she is absolutely gorgeous!  Everyone tells me so then says she looks nothing like me.  Do I take that as a compliment or not?  Sometimes I'm not real sure.  

 All too soon she will graduate and be on her way to college.  Three short years.  My how time flies.  She has the most beautiful voice.  She wants to be a singer/actor some day.  What a world she wants to enter.  From my previous post, you will see I have now found an image for her card.  I won this image from Milk Coffee Digi's.  Since I didn't have an image I felt was right for her, I let her pick the image for her card.  This was her choice.  She is called Tiffany Diva.  However, diva is not the right name for Alicia.  She is very sweet most of the time but a diva she is not.  

Since she loves to sing I added some music signs to her card.  If you haven't figured it out, her fave color is blue.  On the inside, below, the music sheet for Happy Birthday is placed on the bottom part of the card.  Alicia doesn't think I can sing very well so I'm letting the card sing for me.

I'm really liking the pop up cards.  My sister has a tutorial on how to do these and they are so simple but add so much to a card.  You can see her tutorial here.  While you're there you should look through her blog.  She is fabulously talented.

I have colored Tiffany with Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers.  I added Stickles by Ranger to her dress and Glossy Accents to her hair and the flowers.  The sketch is by Charisma Cardz.

The papers come from Bazzill, Core' dinations and my Stash 'O Scraps.  The die cuts are Spellbinders, the punch is Martha Stewart.  These ribbons are Offray and Darice.  The embellishments are also Darice.  Finally the sentiment is from Desert Diva.  

These are the challenges I am entering:

Really Reasonable Ribbon #51 - Children's birthday with ribbon
Emerald Fairies #27 - Birthdays
Bearly Mine #42 - Ribbons and bows
Paper Play #27 - Happy birthday
Lia Stampz #20 - Use your scraps

Hope you like my card and I hope my baby likes it too.  

Thanks for visiting my blog!
