18th birthday card

This is a personalised 18th birthday card for my sons girlfriend. I have used the Tattered Lace essential book die. I have used the dies to cut purple and white layers alternatively. I have embossed the white layers with a Crafts Too embossing folder, I attached these layers to an A4 card after curling the layers around a rolling pin. I have added a 18th key, I picked these up from Home Bargains, they are like the keys that were once popular in boxes as keepsakes. I have added flowers to decorate the key. I have used a Go Kreate scalloped ovals. I cut one oval in purple and then printed a personalised sentiment and die cut with the next size down in the nesting set. I die cut the bookmarks that come with the book dies. I cut this in purple and white and embossed the white to match the book. I added purple ribbon to the bookmark. The "18 today" is die cut with Tattered Lace dies and I added that to the bookmark. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
