Sweet 16

A quick post from me today as it is Hubby's Birthday. We had a lovely day out with friends at the coast. The weather was beautiful, lots of sunshine. I have just managed a little bit of time on the laptop while he watches a programme he recorded last night. I made this card fro a friend's granddaughter's 16th Birthday. It's my first stepper card and I shall definitely be making more of these as I think they are really effective. Her favourite colour is purple, like mine, and she loves cupcakes so this LOTV image was perfect.
