18th Birthday Card

My sons girlfriend is 18 on Friday so I have to make a few different cards for her.

I have matt and layered my white scalloped edge 8x8in white card white turquoise and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Crafts Too embossing folder. I have added silver washie tape and crochet self adhesive ribbon. I stamped an image on white card and an Anna Marie spotty card. I cut out the dress from the dotty image and coloured the other elements on the white image then added the spotty dress, I die cut an oval using a Presscut die and the numbers using Tattered Lace dies. I have printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with Sue Wilson die. I then cut other elements of the die in the turquoise and silver card. I die the key in silver card and added some organaza ribbon. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
