16th Birthday card & High School Prom

It was a very special day for the recipient of this card as not only was she 16, it was also her High School Prom.

 The tags from the inside pockets
I love these quirky characters which are from Lost Coast Designs.
The Angel stamp is from Crafty Individuals
 I helped with the preparations towards this exciting event adding some finishing touches to the dress and I made an evening bag from the remnants of fabric left over from her ballgown. Her Mum "hot fixed" hundreds of diamantes onto the purse and thousands more to the dress. 
I'm glad I only made the evening purse and left her Mum to add the bling!
I've been given permission to post a pic of this lovely young girl looking fantastic in all her midnight blue splendour ready for the ball. It might be a recent American import to have high school proms but it was so lovely to see the excitement for her and it marks the beginning of the next major step on the path to her future career. 
She is bright as well as beautiful so Good Luck to her.

Boy, she looks glamourous. The blinged up purse is just that extra special bit of detail that helps make up the overall look and feel. She must have been overjoyed with the card. You obviously helped make her feel very special on her birthday/prom night. Such is the joy of handcrafting. Being able to give someone special a personal gift. Pxx

That's just great. She must have been so thrilled with her dress and jewelled purse, and her beautiful birthday card with its tags - really stylish and unusual. I think the High School Prom is a super idea - gives the kids the opportunity for a bit of glam as they look forward into their adult lives!

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog! Just off to have a nose around yours.
