15th birthday ....

Hello again. It's been some time since my last blog but finally I've found some time. This was the card I made for my husband's niece's 15th birthday.

below is a pic of everything I used bar the stencil I think. Not usual that I'm so organised, lol!

I started with a piece of 7x7 gelli card and using Jo's bubbles I brushed the adirondaks through it making sure I overlapped colours.

Next I stamped and embossed the lacey birds, followed by sentiment which I curved to make it fit between the beaks.

Using spectrum noir pencils that matched the inks, I coloured in the birds.

Finally I stamped and embossed a mini corner in all 4 corners and added some colour with the pencils. 
I added a black outline with a ruler and a sharpie pen.

The 15 is a diecut on my slice machine which i embossed in kaleidoscope to add some sparkle.
A few gems and some matting and voila'.

I hope you like my offering.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
