Congrats, Girl!

Hey there! Hope your weekend is off to a good start. Hubby & I are driving down to Missouri for the day. Our family is celebrating my niece's Confirmation AND 8th grade graduation.

Since one celebration is religious and the other secular, I was a bit stuck on what her card should look like, particularly the sentiment. I decided to play it safe and go with the generic "congratulations."

I know she loves black & white, but I just had to throw a bit of color in there...and glittered brads, of course. A teenage girly girl can never have enough glitter, right? And since I added some flowers, it fits for this week's
Stamp Something challenge.

I hope she loves it...and I hope you do, too!

Stamps: Congrats (SU)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, PTI white, PTI pp

Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Prima flowers, Doodlebug brads

Oh how fun! Love the pop of the pink and yes, no teenage girly girl can EVER HAVE enough glitter. :) Trust me... ;-) I had glitter as a teenager in my body spray, my lip gloss, my binder. Not sure how my parents let me walk out the door so glittertasticy!
