Birthday card for a lovely Grand daughter.

10 is a hard age to cater for, (that is when you're still suffering from jet lag a week after your return:{) Not too cute, still feminine and not really into fairies at the moment, I was struggling:0) It didn't really hit the mark 'cos I feel it was too old for her but I tried and she was very gracious, bless her! I do know she loves butterflies. Useless Nan:{


 Luckily Mum (her mum, not mine, sorry for confusion) had come up trumps with the birthday cake, what a smasher, Pink and black WOWzers!!
Stuff I used:0)

Spellbinders dies
Tim Holtz flourish die

Gorgeous card - love the butterfly bp, the fabulous swirls and the stunning sentiment label.
There's a challenge some where that want's the sentiment as the main focal point - if I can find it again I'll pop back and let you know.
Love that stunning cake - well done Mum (hers, not yours LOL).
hugs

I think the card is lovely and you are right it is very hard to cater for that age group! They are into one thing one day and something else the next...
The cake also looks amazing, hope it tasted just as good :-)
Love, Alex
