18 Card

I don't often do 'shaped' cards,
but I wanted a card for my niece,
and this week's Stamptacular Challenge
gave me the incentive to try something different.
I found it tricky to cut out the number,
so don't look too closely!!
Sorry about the dark picture too, but it's been raining here all day
and the light isn't good.
I found the template for the 18 card online at Time For Crafting.
Hop on over there and take a look, there are allsorts
of templates and resources.

Recipe:
Design Paper - K & Co Sparkly Sweet
Stamp - Magnolia, Sweetheart Tilda,
coloured with whispers pens.
Flowers punched from DP and sprinkled with diamond dust
Pearl brads and charm from the Hobby House
Ribbon and pearl stickers from my stash.

WoW! Wonderful card! I love this idea and wish I had thought of it a few months ago when my Niece-in-law turned 18! I'll definitely have to remember this!
Thanks so much for joining us again this week at SSC!
