Charisma #23 - How Old?

Yes, thats right, the Charisma Galz want to see NUMBERS on your creations this week!

I've used this Fabulous freebie from Broken Box Stock, coloured with Promarkers. The paper is from a Forever friends stack and I've used my sewing machine with a zigzag stitch to edge the papers. I dont know quite what happened to my machine to get the weird looking stitch around the very edge, as I still had it on the zigzag setting...I think it looks quite good actually, a bit like a vine - but bet I couldnt do it again if I tried!!
The 40 is made with a stamp and I've gone over it entirely with black diamond stickles, a new love of mine!! The ribbon is from stash and I've also blinged up her jewellery :)

Thanks for stopping by :)
