Sweet 16 — Monday Montage #87

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of ten stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.

Two of my children have milestone birthdays next week.  My oldest will turn 18 on Thursday and my middle child will turn 16 on Tuesday.  It is fun to see them grow and mature, but I wish it didn’t have to happen so quickly.

Since my middle child is a Valentine’s baby, when she was little I always made her birthday party invitations and cards with a heart theme.  As she got older, she asked me to stop — she wasn’t into that and wanted a Star Wars theme or a Dr. Who theme, or a whatever-she-was-interested-in-at-the-time theme instead.  I must say it made me a little sad, but I could understand her desire.  But now that she is turning 16, and she is a sweet 16, I couldn’t resist.  One last time!  It’s just too fitting to make her card with hearts for this milestone occasion.

sweet-16I at least tried to use colors that I know she loves — Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, and Bermuda Bay.  She loves bright, happy colors which suits her personality.

The “sweet” on the sentiment was stamped by selectively inking up part of a sentiment from the Birthday Banners stamp set.  The stamped hearts are from the Sealed with Love stamp set.  The large heart was cut from the Carried Away dsp with a Sweet & Sassy Framelits die.  The tiny hearts are from a Paper Pumpkin stamp set.

I got my inspiration for this card from the current sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch site.  Here’s their sketch for the week:
