Happy Birthday Kirsten!

So summertime is when my three beautiful daughters were born.  We start with the oldest on June 10th, the middle one on June 23rd and the baby (almost 10 but she will always be my baby) on July 11th (yup my 7-11 baby).  Needless to say we call it "Birthday Season" around here.  The cakes and cupcakes are never ending between their birthdays, school party, friend's party, family parties, then of course there is my mom, my sister-in-law, my nephew and it blend's in with school year end festivities.  So as we are about half-way through the "season" my daughter will be 14 tomorrow.  She's into detail and can really appreciate a good handmade card, in fact, she expects it.  So I've spent my morning trying to come up with something a little different than anything she has seen before.  This is what I came up with. 

I went with Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Blushing Bride for my color pallete.  The DP is from Basic Grey "Life of the Party".  It's just a little 6x6 pad, but I've already used it for so many cards and still have a nice selection left.

This is the card all folded up.  My t-shirt if from MFT stamps.  I made my tshirt fabric with the balloon stamp from the new SU Sketched Birthday.  The hip-hip horrary is from SU Happiest Birthday Wishes.

I started with a Funky Fold Accordian card kit that I purchased a few years back at a stamp show.  It's made by PaperCut but I do know there are always directions out there to make your own.  I thought it was time to actually open the package.

And..........this is the birthday girl all dressed up last night for the 8th Grade Dance

Hard to believe she is off to High School in the Fall.  She's 4'7" and rocking a size 10 girls dress.
