I’ve long thought Ava was pretty amazing. (Ava is the 12 year old daughter of my goddaughter.) She began middle school in the fall. New school, new teachers, new friends. Lots to deal with. Despite all of that, she earned all A’s on her latest report. AWESOME!  So, naturally a card was in order. Celebrate You Thinlits were the perfect thing

This is a pretty simple card but I think it suits her. Nothing to distract from AMAZING!

Design Notes for Celebrate You Card:

I finally broke out my Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. What have I been waiting for? This black and white paper has several sheets that call out for coloring. I used the Stampin’ Blends to color in the flowers. You know. I love to color. Here’s a good look at the paper.

Really, is there anything better than the combination of black and white?
