A sweet "Sweet 16" card

***I'm on the design team for a new site called Let's Get Peachy. Follow the link to our inaugural post. We're starting with a challenge!

Now for the card of the day:

I really love using collage designer paper. This Cut N' Paste pad by K&Co is a favorite because it has lots of interesting images on each sheet. I wanted the card to convey a "sweet 16" wish so I isolated all the references to sweets for the various blocks on the tri-shutter card. I layered the three desserts so that they pop off the card. I also love My Favorite Things stamps. The set called Who's That Birthday Girl has these adorable individual number candles and the set called Birthday Girl was the source of the perfect sentiment. (Click on the names of the stamp sets to go to MFT's site.)

Thanks for dropping in!

Cor, clever you - it looks so much more than a shutter card. Papers are fab. Aren't you modest about your GD spot.
