Party Dress Birthday Card

Who doesn't love a sparkly party dress!!! My daughter is having a sweet 16 party in a few months (within reason, no super sweet sixteen for us!) so we have seen quite a few sparkly dresses! Oh to be 16 again! My daughter is such a sweet wonderful girl, I know she has a great life ahead of her, I am so lucky to be her mom!!!

Ok so I made this card for the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge going on right now. Always great inspiration available over there! Go take a look!

We had my baby's 16th last week too, (I don't think you can call it "sweet" if it's for a boy.) I love the card. Making the dress real sparkly is just the thing to put it over the top. So pretty!

My baby turned 16 last year. My how time flies by. Your card is gorgeous, and so elegant looking with the black and white. The pink adds just the perfect touch to finish it off.
