Rachel's 15th Birthday

My baby turned 15 yesterday.  Where has the time gone?

I used some of the techniques Ashley showed us in this week's Make it Monday #86:  The Inside Edition, to spiff up the inside of the card I made her.  I had previously posted this card here.

I also broke out my new Pillow Box die, and made a box to match the card.  Rachel is trying to save some money for a school trip later this year, so I filled the box with chocolates and some cash.

Here are the card and gift box together.

Here is a picture of my 'baby'.

Supplies Used for Pillow Box and Inside of Card:

Stamps:  Star Prints, Tag it's, Think Big
Paper:  White, Aqua Mist Patterns 
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Winter Wisteria, Hawaiian Shores, Orange Zest, Aqua Mist
Other:  Pillow Box Die, Twinery Twine 
Thanks for Visiting

  2. You're baby is all grown up mom! She is a stunning young lady! I love your card and pillowbox coordinating - the stars are so fun and colorful!

  3. So fun!! Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter!

  4. I was admiring your fab card (inside and out) and matching pillow box (Who wouldn't love chocolates and money? she sounds like my daughter ha-ha) and then I saw the picture of beautiful Rachel. Hope she had a fabulous birthday.

  5. What a fun little ensemble! Perfect for a 15 year old girl:) I love that color combo too!

    It's amazing how quickly they grow up, isn't it? *sigh*

    Love the card and pillow box. the colors are awesome.
    You nailed the inside sentiment challenge.

  11. Awww Joyce, Rachel is beautiful! Look at that sweet fresh face, and gorgeous big eyes! I am only a bit older than you( I think) and my oldest is twice Rachel’s age.
    Love the matching set you made today. I just ordered that box on Monday not sure what I will use it for but when I saw it back in stock I had to have. Maybe a gift on each place setting for Thanksgiving.

  12. I really love the stars you used and the pillow box is fabulous!! Happy birthday to your daughter!
