Never been Kissed?

Sweet Sixteen and never been kissed? ...humpf....wdyt? lol
My daughter Zoe has been invited to a Sweet Sixteen party for one of her bff's! I love her friend Jamie and wanted to make a special card for her. I knew that I wanted to use black and pink but struggled with what image to use. While digging through my stamp stash ( I really need to organize them a little better) I came across this set from SU that has never seen ink! I had to have it at the time, but it got stashed away and forgotten! :(
I stamped the image with Momento Black and decided to give it a little tint of pink, so I watercolored the dress. Not enough bling, so then I added Cotton Candy stickles, and when the stickles dried ...I am so bad letting things dry...I covered it with crystal effects. (I really need to get that UTEE stuff that I see everyone using, but what the heck is it and how does it work?) lol
I added some pretties kit flat white pearls, and some large Heidi Swapp flowers. The heart is also by Heidi Swapp and is a ghost heart shape. I covered it with tinted Pink versa mark, covered it with heat and stick, heated it and then added some iridescent embossing powder and heated again. I hand wrote 16 with a black copic marker.
I made a puffy bow using SU's sheer pink ribbon (why did they stop making this ribbon?) added a pearl and a charm that says follow your dreams.
I then hand wrote sweet on the side of her dress.
The card measures 5 1/4" sq.
I hope Jamie likes it as much as I had fun making it for her! ...instead of a gift she asked that a donation be made to a charitable foundation in her name. That really is one special young lady!
Have a great day!
