Happy 18th Birthday

My son asked me to make an 18th Birthday card for a friend who's party he is gong to this weekend.  He wanted it to be similar to one I made at the end of last year using the Frou Frou 'Two Of A Kind' stamp from Crafter's Companion - he certainly knows what he wants!


I coloured the image with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and used papers from the Fro Frou collection.  The sentiment is a Woodware stamp and the scalloped border is a Clearly Besotted die - I love these dies, there are three different sizes in the set and this is the middle one.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Dream Valley Challenge 77 - Big Birthdays
Charisma Cardz Challenge 6 - Birthday Girls
Creative Knockouts Challenge 28 - Border Time
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 312 - Girls, Girls, Girls
ABC Challenge - H is for Hair
A Creative Romance Challenge - Seeing Double
Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Black & White, plus one other colour

Thank you so much for joining me today, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that takes the time to visit my blog and leave a comment.
