Here's the card I made for my niece's 17th birthday. The colours haven't come out at all well! The papers are from the free Scrapbook to Go kit (K & Co) that came free when I subscribed to Scrapbook Inspirations. The idea came from the box lid decoration I made at the crop yesterday. The present is a lush little Benefit makeup set.
The 'party' happens every year. All my brother and SIL's families are invited to a birthday tea. What can I say? I usually don't want to go, SIL's family are so different to ours, loud and brash! Tonight we sat and listened to a 16 year old calling her mother 'Jools'. Sorry that isn't my kind of talk, no respect, man! And there is usually not enough food! And everyone has to have a turn at blowing out the candles on the birthday cake (well, not so much now they are older!) Oh well, hopefully we won't have to do it much longer.
