18th Birthday Card


Good morning,

I hope everyone is well and that you are all looking forward to the weekend!

I'm sharing an 18th birthday card I made recently for a friend of my daughter's. I've attempted a card that doesn't have a digital image as I haven't felt much like colouring in with my Promarkers recently. It kind of turned out OK but all the white space is kind of freaking me out!

Design Papers: Bella Gypsy (Contagious cheer)
Embellishments: Ribbon, Button and Pearls from my craft stash
Tools: Circular Punch, Sizzix Circular Scalloped Die and Poppystamps (Simple Banner Die)
Sentiment: Number 18 created on the computer using 'Berlin Sans FB' font

Hi Donna
WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT KIND OF TURNED OUT O.K?!!!
It is absolutely PERFECT!!
We are our own worst critics :-(

I do know what you mean about not wanting to colour an image though - I go through those phases!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

This is lovely but I know what you mean about the white space, I have the same feeling when I'm attempting a CAS card. Pretty papers and a gorgeous ribbon band.
