16 and Beautiful!

Why, oh why, do kids have to grow up?  My niece just turned 16 this week.  Ugh!  Makes me feel old! 
Anyways, I couldn't post her card here until she received it, because she seems to be a faithful follower.  Plus, she has taken an interest in card making herself.  She received a personal Cricut for a Christmas present this past year, and is doing very well with putting it to use.  She will probably put me to shame in her talent as she continues to learn to use it and make cards.  I love seeing what she comes up with each time she makes a new card.  And I have had the joy of exposing her to the "Cricut" world of card making and I think she is liking it! 
I love how this card turned out, kinda grown up yet still youthful looking and fun...The dress is completely made out of ribbon.  The white is is a very wide ribbon, and the red polka dotted ribbon is actually two different ones. 

I used:
Forever Young Cartridge for the dress form
Love's in the Air Cuttlebug folder
White & Black Cardstock
I-rock and gems
Red stickles
Ribbon from Michael's and Hobby Lobby

Thank you so very much for taking a peak at this card! 
I hope you all have a blessed day!
