Sweet Sixteen

Hello, here is another exploding box!  Ive made this in the purple Centura card for a sixteen year old dancer.  I was quire restricted with the requirements for this one as it seems that 16yr olds feel they are too old for Forever Friends and that sort of cutesy images - well that was me told!  Im way passed 16 but still love them anyway, this is the lid and to adorn it I used the Spellbinders corners with a few tiny gems.

This is the inside of the lid and the paper Ive used throughout is the Lil Big Dots in 'Lovely' by Pink Petticoat; the initial is a Quickutz die that was covered in Glamour Dust and placed on a Marianne die.

This is the top shot showing the 3 layers and finally this is one of the loveliest images that was on an old greeting card.

Isnt she just beautiful!  
Id like to enter this into these challenges this week 

An update from Clare, she rang me last night having just been discharged and was looking forward to a lovely hot soak in her bath followed by an early night, Ive yet to ring her as Im sure she will be shattered as we all know, how little sleep we get in hospital!  Im sure Clare will be on her blog over the weekend to update us further.

Hope you have a great weekend, thanks for visiting!

What a lovely card and a great colour - I have to say I actually love Forever Friends and all things cute at 40, so these 16 year olds don't know what they are missing LOL! I am sure she will absolutely love this card Keryn. Great news about Clare too, if you speak to her, please send on my love and hugs. Take care, Claire x

Keryn, another amazing exploding box its awesome. What a wonderful job. I do love the colours and I like that new Spellbinders corner its great. I also love Forever Friends at our age life is too short. At 16 all they want is boys, cellphones so they can text and their IPods how boring is that??? Now 1.42am and I have to get up early as I'm umpiring a Cricket game and the game starts at 8.45am in 7 hours time.
