Happy Birthday to my not so little girl

Well, I thought last year was hard...turning into a teen, now the first full year of a teenager is over, and she's going into high school in the fall....she's wearing makeup full time, cut her hair, babysitting her little brother when needed, just all around turning into such a young woman. I'm so proud of her. I still see that little one that I brought home from the hospital so long ago...feels like yesterday, though...doesn't it always? I can't stand the thought that in four more short years she'll be going out into the world as an adult, gasp! (Love you honey)

I've been spying these shutter cards (tutorial here) since they came out and knew I was going to use it for her birthday card. Her favorite color is green and she doesn't like pink, so I even went as far as to keep the girls dress green.

I kept it simple, yet complete. I love that eyelet punch! Perfect for so many things. And I pulled out my circle scissors for this one. You really have to tape down your paper to the glass mat to keep it from shifting, but when you do it comes out great!!

Set: God's Blessings, Summer By The Sea
Accessories: Maine Blueberry DP, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White & Confetti White cardstocks, Eyelet Punch, Blue Bayou Double Stitch Ribbon, Old Olive Grosgrain, Primas...oh and when I was done I added Stickles to the Primas...I forgot before I photoed it and didn't want to start all over ;)
