Teen Time

 It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.

The challenge this time is: Lots of Layers
And here are my cards for your inspiration:

My two babies just turned 13!!  I usually make them each different cards tailored to their interests/likes.  But with time being short and needing to create a card as inspiration for this challenge, I decided to make them very similar cards, personalized with their favorite colors.  The older twin's favorite color is blue and the younger one's favorite is purple, but also likes a lot of black.  I wanted them to be even more different, so I flipped one of the images (that is about the extent of my digital image editing abilities) and printed it out as a mirror image of the other.  Then, I printed the images out on coordinating patterned papers and paper pieced their sweet dresses and bows.  The card bases and matting layers are made out of a soft gray card stock.  Of course, I had to add some sparkle, so I die cut "13s" out of silver glitter card stock.
Right now, this sweet image is on sale!  So, if you want it, go get it now!!

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Heather, your two birthday cards are so cute! I can relate to flipping your image being the extent of your digi abilities - I aspire to do even that one! LOL As a mom, I find it so interesting that you refer to your twins as younger and older - to everyone else, they are the same age! I am sure they enjoyed your cards on their birthdays! Thank you for playing with us at the Alphabet Challenge and hope you can join in again soon.
