Birthday Bling

One of my 'special peeps' at the college just turned 22. This is her fourth and final year at Briar Cliff University. I've made her a birthday card each year of her residence on campus. I will really miss her when she graduates in May. She will be attending medical school in the fall but I'm sure we will keep in touch if only through Facebook. It is such a privilege and so much fun being a part of students' lives!

Sherin has a love of Jasmine in Disney's Aladin, she LOVES bling, she tutored my granddaughter, she studies hard, is close to her family, and is just an all around good kid! She stopped by the other day to tell me she bought a dress at Charlotte Russe...well it is technically a dress...and it will be adorable on me it resembles a lycra leg warmer! She decided the straplessness and skin tight gathers in a bright royal blue isn't quite eye popping enough so she bought tubes of E-6000 glue and thousands of shimmery blingy rhinestones. She is in the process of gluing the sparklies to the bodice of the dress. As I said it will be adorable on her.

Needless to say - she is a girl who likes her bling. So in honor of the dress and her birthday I made this card just for her!
