Grandaughters 18th Birthday...eek

oooh that makes me feel sooo old.

Hi there, as you might have gathered our grandaughter Charlotte turned 18 yesterday. I honestly don`t know where the years have gone. Seems like only yesterday I was sat in the delivery room watching her being born.
Anyway, a special card was in order but ...what to do. I thought a floral fancy was a bit twee for 18 but CaS seemed a bit too plain. After much umming and arring I turned to Pinterest for inspiration and found THIS card which I promptly CASED.

It had to be purple ( she is so not a pink girl) so I thought I`d go a bit over the top with it.
The DP is Pink Petticoat Brocade in Pansey and I managed to match it with some purple card and ribbon .
The wording is computer generated, I`ve changed the wording slightly from the original, and I`ve cut it out with a Die-namics tag die.
I cut a star (Sizzix) in silver glitter card and the numbers ( Memory Box) and Happy Birthday ( Britannia Dies) from purple glitter card.
It went down really well when we gave it to her and I don`t think she`ll have received another one quite like this.
I`m entering this into Pixies Snippet Playground 119 as I`ve used a few bits and bobs from the snippets box.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
