It is my granddaughter, Katie's, birthday this month, 18 is the magic number this year. She is such a sweet girl and enjoys school, she plays the harp, is in the Debate Club, and wants to be an actress. Her favorite color is purple, so everything she gets is that color. Last year she received a paper purse and a purple shoe, for her birthday.

I had made this card in pink and wanted to make sure that this year Katie got one that is purple. The base of the dress is cardstock and then I have added strips of purple sheer ribbon to create the designer dress. I also added picot bows at the top and across the bottom. The corners were also rounded with a corner rounder and Spellbinder scalloped oval die cut for the sentiment on the front.

Ribbon happens to be the challenge at The Pink Elephant, there are some wonderful project featuring ribbon on the blog, and this is my finished project. Know that Katie will really love this card and wish I could see her face when she opens it, she is such a "drama queen."
The above picture was taken at Christmas, this was the reaction she had about all of her gifts.
Happy Birthday, Katie!
