Sweet 16 Card

Woohoo for Friday. Friday is absolutely my favority fave!!!! Soccer and baseball are beginning to wind down. I feel like we have been moving at full speed for two months. I was able to make a card for my niece who is turning 16 on Monday. I was able to make it last night, because baseball was cancelled! My niece plays softball on two maybe three teams, so I wanted to have a little softball lady on my card.

I cut the little lady from Cricut Decal Cartridge (the cartridge that came with the E2). I did have to cut her out three different times as I wanted the little lady to be white and I wanted her to have brown hair and a brown glove. Her team shirt had to be maroon, so I cut her, white, brown and maroon @ 3.25.
I had to use the Perfect pearls, I just love them and it gives it a feminine touch. And you will be happy to know, I didn't touch them ALL night and they dried nicely!!

There is a close up of the little lady. I was looking for google eyes, I couldn't find mine. Dawn couldn't find hers either, but she came over with these blue little blings and sure enough my niece has blue eyes, so perfect touch!! Thanks, Dawn!! I cuttlebugged her little shirt and glove.

Sweet is from Graphically Speaking on pg 40. It actually says Sweet Girl, I cut off the girl. 16 is cut from George and the Basic Shapes. I used the strips of paper from my cut outs of the little lady!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend!!!
