Happy Sweet 16, Nicky!

This week is my niece Nicky's 16th Birthday. Happy Birthday, Nicky! How do they grow up so fast? I remember when she was a sweet little flower girl in my wedding.

When I started planning Nicky's card I happened to see a really good sketch on the I {heart} 2 Stamp challenge, so I couldn't resist!

This card has a pink CS base and the DP is all by Me & My Big Ideas from the Alison collection. The main image and small cupcake (I just love cupcakes!) are from the Gingersnaps Celebrate stamp set, which is new to They are stamped on watercolor paper with StazOn. The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly (I got 100 sentiments in a clearance pack for a great price and this is probably the only time I'll use this one). I used watercolor pencils, Stardust pens and a white Inkssentials pen on the images.

This was a fun card to make. Go check out I {heart} 2 Stamp and join in their challenge.
