Sweet Sixteen

That is the age of my second oldest granddaughter today.  She is a diva - sings, plays cornet, plays soccer  footsool, is in Rovers and generally is too busy for school! She is just finishing year 10 and will be going to Year 11 College next year - look out world!  Did I get her card made ahead of time?  NO.  Did I spend all day today getting it made?  YES. What is it about making a special card for a special person - why does it take such a long time? After I had smudged and torn my way through the card and covered up the errors - I was glad to hand it over.  Last thing was dropping the sentiment stamp inside back onto the card after I had stamped the sentiment so nicely onto the inner and having to remove the original one and replace it with another.  I usually don't stamp straight onto the inside of the card for precisely this reason - and it was a good thing too today!

I am going to enter it into CR84FN colour challenge #44:  Coral, Pink and Aqua
