A Fashionable Birthday Wish


This card is for my dear friend Kathryn who will be turning 18 soon.  She loves fashion and design!  She is traveling to Paris next month and has the exciting opportunity to check out a fashion school while she is there.

I thought card would be perfect for her birthday.... 

I used a Fiskars border punch and singled out one of the decorative portions to create a tag. 

You'll also notice that I changed the design of the dress a bit by adding some hand drawn black lines to create a black lace overlay.

The Eiffel Tower included in the transparent set was the ideal image to create a coordinating envelope.  A quick elegant touch to add to the French theme.

Have a colorful day!

Au revoir,
