Reusing Magazines to Create

My daughter has yet another birthday party to attend.  I made this card using an image I found in a magazine.  I thought it captured the look of a teenaged girl quite well!
I used my Creative Memories Cutting System to cut the image and the two mats.  16 was cut with Ashlyn's Alphabet (with a shadow) and run through a Cuttlebug border folder.  I also used my pink gel pen to colour the indented portions of the embossing.  The patterned paper is from a stack of cardstock I purchased at Costco and the solids are from my cardstock stash.  I also cut a 2 inch strip of pink, punched it with a border punch and then added some score lines for just a bit more detail.  Three tiny gems were added to the girl's bracelet and then three larger gems to the pink border.  The image and number 16 are popped.

Loving the card! Great use of a magazine pic!! I love to take color schemes in ads and use them for inspiration. Hey, those people get paid big bucks to create those schemes :)

Love the embossed 16 too!!!
