Happy Birthday Sophie xx

Hi all, hope you are well.
Today it is my darling daughter's 16th Birthday. She is such a special person to me and has been through so much over the last 16 yrs but we have helped each other through all the bad times and have also had lots of wonderful times. She is exactly 16yrs old now as I write this post as she was born at 10.20am (by caesarean section) and weighed a lovely 6lb 2oz.  She really is a lovely young lady and has her head screwed on the right way with lots of hopes and dreams ahead of her. She is in her final yr at school and would like to become a midwife so she is planning on going to college and then on to university in the hope of fulfilling her dreams.
Anyway now that her birthday is here I can blog the lovely card I made her.  I saw the idea on Julie's site here.
I cut the card out using the largest scalloped heart Spellbinder die that I had and then cut the patterned paper using the largest circle die.  The image is from Saturated Canary (its part of an image which I enlarged). Cant remember where the papers are from as I have so many that I'm trying to use at the moment!! The butterfly is from a Cheery Lynn die set of 3 which I coloured with Promarkers and then added some glitter to and the letters are made from die cuts (can't remember the make at the mo) which I borrowed from my dear friend Eileen (whose blog can be found here). I finished off with a little heart button at the front.
This is a front view of the card...
..and this is a view of it flat ready to go in an envelope. I was able to use a DL envelope.

Though I would finish off with a couple of photos of the birthday girl. We went out for a meal last night and she was surprised with a chocolate cake!!

This is Sophie and one of her best friends Sarah (Sez). 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be back soon with some more of these easel cards which I'm hoping to make for Christmas!!

Happy crafting.
