Rio's Supersweet 16

This blog hop is to celebrate the 16th Birthday of Rio, daughter to Betty Roberts of Simply Betty Stamps.  You should have arrived here from the Blog of Trish TheDish Sakulich.  Betty provided the image and we were left to our own devices as to colours and decoration.  I decided to keep the look and feel of the card clean and plain.

I used a plain pink paper for the first layer around the image and then a rose pattern paper under that, these papers are from my personal stash.  I cut a 16th Birthday button out on my Silhouette and stuck this to the image, glitter flowers are from my personal stash and the flower dangle was from 99p shop and I attached a little 'made with love' charm as little extra touch.  Hope you like the card and enjoy looking through the Hop.

Happy Birthday Rio x
