My niece, Brianna, has a 12th birthday coming up (I hope I did the math right; I screwed up doing the math figuring out how old one nephew was and actually sent him a card with the wrong age on it).
I also have a new nephew, Ronan Matthew, who was born on May 4. That brings the niece and nephew count up to a total of 14 now. I am such a bad aunt; I was so wrapped up in the new nephew's birth that I totally forgot a different nephew's birthday which was on May 10.
Back to Brianna -- her favorite colors are green and blue. She is so hard to make a card for because she isn't the typical 12 year old girl who likes pinks and purples. Normally I would have made a cupcake card or something with flowers and butterflies on it, but not for Brianna. She is a tomboy who loves softball, skiing, wall climbing and probably so much more that I don't even know about. She lives in Colorado and I don't get to see that part of my family very often.
So I attempted to make a card using her favorite colors but didn't want it flat and boring looking so I used some glitter paper and sequins to shine it up a bit.
