Sweet Sixteen

Good Evening...

I can't quite believe that I'm finally writing my first post. I'm a little nervous, but also excited.

This is a card I made for a friends' daughter who was sixteen last month.

I have used one of the lovely images by Krista Smith at Saturated Canary. I have only recently discovered Krista's art work and love her digi images, so you can expect to see a few more cards with these cute designs on.

Sorry about the quality of the photo. I've not quite mastered this yet.

Here is a close-up of the image. They're great for teenagers.
