something old something new Whew!

Hi Everyone,

I did it! I made another card and it's still January lol 2 in one month is a new achievement!

I did have some difficulties making this one. (so please be kind ).

It is my cousins 16th birthday which of course is her sweet 16 we will be heading out for dinner at the Spaghetti Factory (only place that fits 19 of this (soon to be 20!) I am sure they see our name and go oh no it's them again! we go that often.

My cousin isn't a girly girl when asked what she is into these days I got this for an answer: Rugby, Basketball and school... Hmmm how do you make a card out of that. Although I wish there were teen girl sport stamps out there  because that is her passion and a few of the people I make cards for also have this passion.

Going through my stamps I just decided to do the next stamp that inspired me..... so Bambi Bubblegum it was I thought she seems teen like, isn't too girly and would be a fun image.

Kraftin kimmies is doing a challenge right now called something old something new and I decided to partake...  (something old is the card stock and embossing folder used, the thickers, the pink ink from close to my heart and I decided to use my oldest copic marker to decide what colors combo to do (I bought R11 and RV55 first b/c I love pink). The new: is the pattern papers, the stamp, and the itty bitty stickers.

Supplies used:
Copics skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E02  Hair: E21, E25, E27, E79 Bubblegum: Rv 55, R11, R35, R29 the bubble gum stand R29, R35, R89 and the glass in the stand C01, C03 Bubblegum Bubble R11 and Rv 06 (I think sorry didn't keep good track today), eyes old olive (shouldn't have done that)
Papers: Reflections cardstock Neuteral pack, light grey cardstock (misc), Sasafrass by october afternoon (pants), Blush by MME, Love Story by EP, Copic Express it
Letters: Thickers ruby red glitter cardstock (I think they were roller rink), Pink Paislee Indigo bleu itty bitty blocks.
Other stuff: Spell Binders circle dies, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dot cuttlebug embossing folder, Bubblegum close to my heart ink pad  

Inspired By: Deconstructing Jen, Kraftin kimmies stamps,
 Papercuts blog (Michele Boyer I could not figure out her hair for the life of me so I went to find somebody elses image to learn where to put the high lights. Just not my coloring day today)
