for my granddaughter next month. She is at that in between age - will be 12 so doesn't want or need a babyish card but not quite grownup yet so I found this gorgeous Panda. The grown up bit is the black sparkly letters for her name instead of silver or pink.
I have a great bamboo die so I googled some bamboo backing paper and used that. Quite effective I think.
Here is the card.
