Just in the Nick of Time for Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #146

   My neice is turning 13 on the 17th of December.  I needed to make a card that would be appealing to a teenager. I found a piece of pattern paper from the Glitter Mat Stack. I already had a stamp in mind. I just couldn't come up with a layout. I toyed with this card for the past 3 days. Tonight I decided to use the Sweet Sunday Sketch #146. You can check out the sketch here. (Sorry, I wan't able to load it on my blog.) This is my first time playing along with this group.

     This sketch took me out of my comfort zone because I rarely work with 2 pieces of pattern paper. I felt they coordianted nicely. The present is propped up on dimensionals as is the 1/4 inch strip of glittered squares  to the right of the present.  You can not tell by the photo.
      I think the glitter and bright colors would be appealing to someone who is becoming a teenager.
   Well I need to post this so I can link it up to the challenge. It closes within the hour.

Oh, I know that this is perfect for a 13 year old girl. Love how the patterned papers work together.
