For this card Teri very kindly gave me permission to use her digi's to create a backing paper - thank you Teri <g>.  I am in a bit of a dilema - sore hands but the head needs 'me time' lol so a bit of a trade off at the moment with cards lol

For this card I used Butterflies by Delicious Doodles, there are three butterflies in the set and I used them all.  Thought I would try to make a retro card so chose to use only four colours plus black.  I did have some butterflies on the 13 which were cut with Cherry Lyns Mimi butterflies using Funky Foam, worked a treat but too much going on with the card and they distracted from the background so I decided to tuck them away for another day. I cut the 13 with my die cutter and embossed it with an Embossalicious Folder then edged with Metallic Pink Promarker.  The 13 was then attached with foam tape.  Not a complicated card but rather appealing for a 13 year old I think.  So how to link this to lucky/unlucky 13th, well I guess you feel rather lucky when you become a teenager, all grown up etc. but alas in reality still a kid and treated like a kid so maybe not so lucky lol.

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


  1. Wow, that's some incredible backing paper - the butterflies are so beautiful and how kind of Terri to allow you to 'adapt' her wonderful work. I bet you had fun choosing the colours for the butterflies. The embossed '13' is just right - a thirteen year old really wants to have the fact that she's become a teenager emphasized. Her poor parents - they'll have this card waved in front of them whenever they say 'No' to their darling on the grounds of her age. :-) Lovely birthday card xx

  2. Gorgeous, Mimi! Love what you did with Teri's butterflies. So glad you decided to play along at Delicious Doodles this week. Good Luck.
