Emma's 18th Birthday

I can't believe my first grandchild has reached the age of 18 today! 

I started to make this card for her on Thursday but, probably because I had been feeling a bit unwell all week, it proved to be a mammoth task and just about everything that could go wrong did - you know how it can be sometimes. Anyway - I managed to get it finished just in time for the BBQ planned to celebrate  her birthday and I'm pleased to say she was very appreciative.

She is the artist in the family so her approval meant more than usual. lol

I wasn't able to scan the card this time as it is very 3D and because the scanner didn't close properly the light kept getting in so I had to resort to photographing it - hence the strange grey outline but I hope you can see it well enough.

The image is a digi stamp from Kenny K. which actually reminds me a little bit of Emma  and the papers were from a batch I bought from C&C a while ago. The white mat was made with a MS round the page punch. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and I edged them with a blue promarker to tone in with the colour scheme and then edged the petals with frosty stickles. I also coloured the ribbon with a promarker and the sentiment label was cut with my Cricut and the words computer generated.

 I found the little silver key and the butterfly charms in my stash box which completed the card.

I hope you like it.
