The final 16th

Today's card is the last of the 3 16th birthday cards I have done for one of my colleagues at the library, this one was for her daughter Melissa who is having a Big Fat Gypsy themed birthday party and will be wearing a corset and tutu outfit. I really had to scour the internet for a digi image to suit and eventually found this one by Make it Crafty, I needed to cut off the back of her long ruffled skirt but other than that the image was perfect for my card. I coloured the image with promarkers and added some stickles to the ruffles on her skirt. I used some chipboard letter which came free with this month's copy of Home made magazine and used Glossy Accents to add a generous sprinkle of glitter strands for extra sparkle.

Awesome card design! Also, Big Fat Gypsy Birthday party has to be one of the coolest ideas ever - definitely leaves lots of creative scope for costume making!
