Taryn's 13th Birthday

I was asked to make a birthday card for a friend's daughter.  It was her 13th birthday and I was told she liked the colors blue, green and purple. Likes music, shopping and dancing.  So, I did my best to make a card that both Paula and her daughter Taryn would love.

Luckily, I picked up this music background stamp a few weeks ago. (Since I'm sitting on my patio - I can't remember who makes it and I'm too lazy to go look!).  I embossed it in white, then used my blue, green and purple distress inks to blend the background.

I was given those cute little shopping bags a while back and knew I should use one for the card.  I cut out her name and age with my Sizzix letters and then stamped the cupcake and shoes.  I embossed the background with Cuttlebug swiss dots and put it all together!

This was a fun card to make and I hope they were both happy with the result!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Oh I KNOW they'll be happy with this. PERFECT for a 13 year old and love it. The little shopping bag is so cute too. Really like that background sheet music type paper and the distressing.

What a fabulous teenage girl card! I love how beautifully that background embossed and how beautifully you applied your distress inks! I think I need to practice some more with those.

Maria, this is really gorgeous. I think both Taryn and her mom will love it. I LOVE how you used her favorite colors and the music background.
