Spread Those Wings

Ok, I just made this card and have already thought of a couple of ways I would change it.  But I'm short on time, so I'm leaving this one as is.  I have been busy struggling to make a card for Darien's birthday (Sunday!) and I think I finally have it done.  I think.  Well, if I leave it alone and don't decide to completely start over, I'm done.  Anyway, I thought I'd throw together a little eye candy for ya until I put up her birthday shtuff.  I know I usually have a hard time with certain cards (cards for guys, all 3 of the girls...), but this year's birthday card was different. She'll be 16 and I'm sure she has high expectations.  I think where I go wrong every time is I'll make a card for someone else, and one of the girls will go, "ooh! i love that. i want a card like that."  And do I ever make a note of that & write it down?  Nah, that would be too easy.  Let's just wait until days before their birthday & sweat it out like a nervous wreck and then hope for the best that whatever I've made doesn't make them puke.  K, so maaaybe  I'm exaggerating. But only a teensy bit. I do try to outdo myself and sometimes I feel like I've succeeded.  So, we'll see this year. 

Stamps: Beautiful Kindness (Verve), Ink: Elegant Eggplant (SU!), Paper: Vintage Cream & Plum Pudding (PTI), Elegant Eggplant & Rich Razzleberry (SU!), Accessories: butterfly punches, scalloped edge punch, flat back pearls

Love the purple butterflies! And you do some of your best work under pressure. I'm sure she'll love whatever you come up with. Oh, wait, she'll be 16 ...
Naw, it'll be fine!
