Girly Need for Speed


This card is for my daughter who will be 11 tomorrow.  I've hopefully combined her girly side and her tomboy side.  She's a bit wild when she gets on a quad and is very speedy but has also started to think a little more about fashion.  

I've started with Rose Red as the card base and added a layer of Whisper White.  I ran some Bashful Blue through the Cloudy Day Embossing Folder and added some Designer Series Paper - along the bottom.  The Rose Red Seam Binding brings in the pink from the card base.  I then cut a semi circle of Whisper White.  I stamped the quad bike from Need for Speed in Night of Navy and fussy cut out.  Then added this to the circle with Dimensionals.  I stamped the little sentiment below in Rose Red from Happiest Birthday Wishes (retired).  I then added "daughter" from For My Family in Rose Red and I punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.  A couple of Basic Rhinestones gives a little bling. 

So we've got lots planned for tomorrow - cards to open, lunch out in town, birthday cake later but no pressies to open.  Which feels a bit strange as she has asked for money to put to her savings.  It all feels a bit grown up! 

Thanks for your visit.  x

She sounds very mature for 11 yrs old. My, I feel old. I have a grandson that's 13 and he likes to be speedy as well on anything with wheels. Scares me to death sometimes. Enjoy your day with your daughter. I'm sure she will love this perfect card made with so much love and thought!
