Teenage kicks

Needed a broody teenage card today and came up with this little number. I was looking for something for a young woman (got to call them that now) but not something pretty and flowery if you know what I mean. I like the mixture of dark with a bright splash of a little something. Obviously she will be more interested on what I put in the inside it, but you never know I can add her to the convert list - I will convert you all in the end you know!!!!!!!!!!!

Would also like to say a big thank you to the very sweet Alex, who has not just given me one award but THREE - thank you so much. Please pop over and say hi - she's a whizz on the die cutting machine and a mean stamper too you know :D

Have a great day & see you tomorrow

Fab card Emma, great for a teenager that doesn't do girly, but still a feminine card - clever you!

Well you converted me ages ago, hun! LOL! I love the grungy-teenager-but-still-partly-girly look!
I've got a teenage boy to cater for this week - I was thinking of adopting a grungy-teenager-smelly-socks style! What d'ya think?
