Happy Sweet 16

Exploring Cricut and More is celebrating their 4th birthday this week.  To celebrate they are hosting a birthday challenge and also sharing birthday projects all week to get our creative juices flowing.  But the fun ends on the 26th.  Fortunately I'm getting a little play time in while I'm finishing preparations for my craft show this weekend. 

I have this Forever Young cartridge that I've never really played with much and thought this  girl would be perfect to use for a Sweet 16 birthday card.  Her stance made it the perfect choice to combine with the "16" candles I cut using the Sweet Treats cartridge. 
The background 'paper' I used for this card isn't really paper but rather  a sheet of aluminum foil from Walnut Hollow.  I loved the way it turned out so much that I went back to Michael's this weekend and bought a pack of every color available.

My inside sentiment on this one says, "Say goodbye to dolls and toys.  Say hello to makeup and boys!  Happy Sweet 16"
And now I'm off to enter my card into their challenge.
