18th Birthday

My card today has been made for a lovely young lady who will be 18 in a few days time. The flowers and the backing paper are from the Petunia Collection from Heartfelt Creations (I will to confess to having lots of their stamps and die sets). The card is an 8x8 base, then I used silver mirri card to mat the backing paper onto. The die cut square is from Tattered Lace and I kept the middle to stamp the sentiment onto, this was from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped and embossed the flowers with silver EB powder and then coloured using distress ink in Shaded Lilac and then Stampin Up ink in colours Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green. The flourishes are from Tattered Lace and finally the 18 Today is from All Occasion Dies.

 Because of the shaping on the flowers the card needed a box to pop the card into. The cut out corners are from a Tim Holtz Sizzix die.

I'm going to enter this into the Stamping Sensations Challenge which this month is Anything With Flowers.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
