Teen Birthday

This one is for our Granddaughter's 14th Birthday. I do find teenager cards can be quite difficult - it's striking the balance between too young and too old I think. I've been rescued this year by a lovely stamp by Elaine Cox that I won in a Sweetpea Stampers Challenge a couple of weeks ago. Isn't she lovely? Perfect for a 14yr old I think. I've coloured her with promarkers and added a touch of glitter with a clear sakura sparkly pen although this doesn't show up too well in the photo. My bp's are all from Crafty Ann's - the brown and orange from the Polished Stone collections and one of the crinkle collections that aren't in the shop just yet but will be by the end of the week. The text was done in photoshop and added to the brown bp before printing it off. The only embellishment is the 3D short petal flower in the top right hand corner. I've just used one layer this time though. I printed it onto the back of the gold mirri and have added some tiny papermania adhesive shimmer dots to the centre. I've also used one of the next size up of the shimmer dots to give her an earring.
