Special 18th Birthday Wishes

This is the card that me and hubby gave to Gemma for her 18th Birthday.


I have used my favourite Woodware stamp, this stamp has paid for itself time and time again, I expect you are fed up with seeing it but I'm afraid there are a few more to come yet, I'm in the middle of another one for a boy!


The papers are from the LOTV Country Lady and Always & Forever Paper Pads and the flowers are a Tim Holtz die with some pearls added to the centre.  I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp the paper pieced image and everything has been distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink.


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

Seize the Birthday Challenge - Flowers
Fantasy Stampers Challenge 10 - Numbered Birthday
Come and Get It Challenge - Birthdays
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Birthdays
Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge 26 - Celebration

Nutcrafters Challenge 68 - Numbers

No, will never get tired of seeing what you make with this stamp! As you say its paid for itself because it can be for a boy or girl. Love your paper piecing and pretty florals. Michelle x
