I have to give a big "thank you" to the gals at Freshly Made Sketches for posting the *perfect* sketch at the perfect time. I have been saving a particular paper kit for my daughter's 18th birthday because it contained her favorite shades of blue and she loved the graphics. Problem was, I couldn't figure out how to make a card out of this paper and keep the main graphics intact. Although I had to take some liberties with it, my problem was solved as soon as I saw this week's sketch.
So here is my take using the long retired Close To My Heart paper kit "Magnifique" and the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the frames for the sentiments on both the front and the inside using Lagoon cardstock. The "happy" and "birthday" stamps are from the Card Word Puzzle (C1494), the "th" from the Typeface alphabet (A1117), and the "18" is from this month's Stamp of the Month set, Capture the Date.
