Happy Birthday Sweet 16

My granddaughter's 16th birthday has come and gone.  Where has the TIME gone? It marches on whether we like it or not.
I am so proud of this girl!  She is turning into such a wonderful, sweet, caring, and beautiful young woman full of common-sense and making great choices.  Her grades are great, she is involved in sports and the associated student body; just becoming a wonderful young lady.  Love you to pieces Emma girl --- as much as all the sand on all the beaches in all the world. 

A special birthday for a special girl called for a special card.  I put together a step card in some autumn-feeling colors to honor her special occasion.  And since the rolled roses precluded a regular envelope, a special box was also needed.  :)  AND there was something very special in this box along with the card, but I am not telling.  Let's just say she was extremely happy and surprised!  ;-)

 This is the top of the box.  I used two sheets of 8.5 x 11 cream paper, one for the top of the box and one for the bottom (not shown), using a Silhouette cut file.

Unfortunately, the edge of the creamsicle-colored layer is not showing the gold edge I added for additional dimension.  My personal message to her is written on the back of the card.
Supplies Used:  Paper is from the DCWV paper stack Coral Couture.  Spellbinders die, Viva Pen in cream, Silhouette cut files, rolled rose cut file from Penny Duncan, and a Martha Stewart leaf punch.  The sentiment was printed from the computer then die cut. 

Thank you so much for stopping by More Paper Kisses and Inky Wishes today.  Hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day Weekend.  The end of summer......:(    Hugs, Shawna
