Happy 18th Birthday

Hi Everyone,

My daughter is going to another party for one of her friends tonight and this is the card I've made for her.  I would call this style Fresh Vintage.  The patterned paper is from the pack called Falling In Love which I teamed with some of the SAB Glimmer, a little lace and a die cut Butterfly.

The cardstock is Sweet Sugarplum, Very Vanilla and Soft Sky (inside).  The framelits I've used are Butterfly, Stitched Shapes and Large Numbers.  Here's a closer look at how the butterfly sits on the cardfront, over the glimmer paper.  The vintage look really comes from the patterned paper.  I think this side of the sheet with all the butterflies is so pretty.  I have used one of my older "vintage" aka retired stamp sets called Well Scripted for the beautiful birthday greeting, stamped in Sweet Sugarplum, cut with the Stitched Shapes and inked around the edge with Tip Top Taupe in and raised on dimentionals on the card.  You can see its raised in this pic.

This picture shows the popout area inside the card for the Age which was cut with the Large Number framelits in Soft Sky & Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer paper (from SAB).  I added a small border strip of Soft sky to both top and bottom of the inner card.

Some closeups:-

I put half a doily on the background at the top of the popout area and layered the numbers on each other for a slight shadow effect and to give them added strength and stability.

Hope the Birthday Girl loves it.

Have a great Easter weekend everyone.
