Aged to Perfection.........

.........or all grown up!!!

 I had been asked to make  an 18th birthday card for a beautiful young lady who is all grown up. I don't think she would class herself as 'aged' lol but she has 'aged' or grown into a beautiful young lady. So that is my take on this week's challenge over at CD Sunday, 'Aged to Perfection'.

For the pink background paper I used the Crafters Companion CD 'Adorables'. The colour matched perfectly with the image background. I found the image in my stash but no idea who it's by. Maybe someone recognises it and will let me know. I hate putting something on the blog and not being able to give credit to the designer.

I placed  the main image at an angle and made a grapevine border using my CD Greeting Card Factory Deluxe. I use this all the time for inserts and it does have lots of useful images too.



 
 
From this CD I also made the tag. It was great not to have to 'fiddle' to make a border etc as it was all there. I used zig zag scissors to cut it out. I just had to add my own sentiment which reads.
 
 'Like fine wine you have aged to perfection. Have a perfect birthday'
 
Then the 'bling' was added to the top and bottom corners. I also used a green gel pen on the dress as it had printed off very pale and it needed 'lifting'. It also matched the rest of the green in the card and has a lovely shimmer to it.....which doesn't show in the piccie. I'm going to put '18' on the handbag when I can find a green number suitable. I've tried colouring peel offs but the green comes out too dull. So more experimenting needed methinks.

  1. What a lovely idea Wynn - & you are right you don't have to old to be aged to perfection do you. I am sure the young lady will be thrilled with this card.
