Stencils still make little kids happy :)

Hi everyone :) I have awesome friends named Nick and Angie who are so much fun and have a great sense of humor.  They are genuinely good people and I know that every time they need a card, it's going to be a fun challenge. This time was no exception.  One of Nick's closest friends is going through a divorce and it's really hard on her daughter. Being the nice people that they are, they asked me to make a card saying how awesome she is. Nick gave me the words to use and left the creativity up to me.  Here's what I came up with:


I didn't have a stamp for the outside, so I just used my printer.  I wanted to keep the front cute and simple so it didn't take away from the most important part...the inside:  


There is a small mirror inside that I framed with the same stars pattern that is on the front of the card. It reads simply "....YOU!"  The little girl was SO excited to get the card. Her mom sent me a nice email saying how much it was appreciated, so without a doubt, mission accomplished. I was really happy to see that she loved it and that Nick and Angie loved it, too :) 

Here is a list of products that I used for this one:
MPD Graduated Stars Stencil (My Favorite Things)
Tim Holtz Mirrored Sheets
Colorbox Cat's Eye Ink Pad in Chiffon White
Victorian Velvet Distress Ink
Impression Obsession Make Me Happy
