Growing up fast and 10 already

Hello there, yes I am back again and I quite cant believe myself but I have been busy creating a special card for friends granddaughter who's birthday is next month. I do like to get prepared early so I decided to get cracking on with it.

The little girl in question is 10 this year (doesn't time fly) ,really I should say mini young lady as she is growing up so fast and is turning into bonny young lady. With that note I thought I would make her a card that fits her and not go down the babyish route. 

I recently purchased the Making cards magazine and see these free papers and decide this would suit her to the tee. 

I so hope she likes this creation as I have worked so hard to pick a design that would suit her, I will let you know how she likes it next month.
