The card is cute, but your daughter is absolutely beautiful. I see her momma in her for sure. I remember when I turned eighteen, my mom had a hard time with that. My mom is gone now, she died when I was 21, but I have almost every letter and/or card she gave me. I am sure your daughter will keep this special card too!
I love your style and all your ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Birthday Allie!

This is a great card. I just made a similar one (same stamp). I used Stickles where you used rhinestones. I like the idea of rhinestones.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful card!
