Happy Sweet Sixteen

Hello Everyone!

Today is a special young lady's 16th birthday. Happy Birthday Rio!!! In honor of Rio's birthday we're celebrating with a card share and blog hop.

Hi Rio and Happy Sweet Sixteenth Birthday. I hope you are having the time of your life. Always stay smart and sweet :) I wish you the best in all of your endeavors now and the rest of your life. Hugs.

Now on to the hop. If you are coming from the very talented Jackie Randolph's blog then you're in the right place. If not then you should start at Simply Betty's Blog 

I used Rio Mad Hatter Reads Digi and I used the Surprise Pop-Out Card Die and Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die to create my card. Here is a link of how the die works:

Here is the card I made.

 Here's a close-up. I cropped and it made it a close up so it can fit on that little flip section of the card.
This is the other side when I open or flip the card for a fun surprise. I so love this die. 
I created that layer... with Kraft Paper from Recollections- it's called:  "Printed Cardstock Timeless."
I kept eyeing it at Michael's LOL and now every time I look at it I'm absolutely in love with it. LOL
 .... here is part of my process to give it a more dimensional look
I used only Copic markers to color my image.
