Hi everyone...I hope you're having a beautiful weekend! I'm procrastinating writing a presentation that I'm giving at an upcoming nursing conference...and, guess what?... making cards is sooooo much more fun! So, here's a sweet little card that I made for our oldest grandaughter, Emma. She's 11..oh, my! Double digits!! She's an amazing beautiful...bright...and athletic! She's Sophie's older sister (6 years age difference...same as my sister and me!) Anyway...I found this adorable little Mo Manning stamp called "End of Summer" and decided it would be perfect for Em! Here's the card "recipe"...

Cardstock: Pretty in Pink & Almost Amethyst (from Stampin-Up)
Designer Paper: also from SU
Sentiment: Whimsical Words (from SU)
Paper punch: Petunia (I think that's what this flower is called) from Martha Stewart
Edges of image: Bashful Blue & Always Artichoke ink from SU
Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000 (and R21 & 20 for her cheeks)
Hair: E25, 55, and YR21 & 20
