Sweet Sixteen

Okay, here is the card I set out to make on Wednesday when I ended up with this card. Doesn't it look more like Silke's than my other one?

I decided to put the white squares up on dimensionals as well as the scalloped squares. I see from my picture that I need to use another dimensional on the pink flower.

I printed the "Sweet Sixteen" using the computer. I used this handy resource to set the ink colour to Chocolate Chip. Because I don't own a ton of stamps (yet), I often end up printing sentiments on the computer. Also, because I don't have an oval punch, I used the Drawing Tools in Microsoft Word to create an oval that is the correct size to fit inside the Hodgepodge Hardware and then just cut it out after it is printed. (Just draw an oval, right click on it and go to "Format AutoShape" and go to the "Size" tab. You can add text inside the oval by right clicking and go to "Add Text'.)

The only thing I'm not thrilled about is the ribbon. I don't find that it quite matches the Pretty in Pink paper or the stripes on the Designer Paper. Has anybody else noticed this?

Love the card I like that you use the computer, as well as other resourses. The pink ribbon looks great and added a great touch. First time at your site, I will return, you have a good style. es
