birthday wishes '18'

ode to be '18' again ... not!  Hind sight is a wonderful thing and I look back and although I had less grey hair and wrinkles at 18 and was thinner - I prefer life now than back then!
So my sister in law skypes me last night saying a friend wants an 18 birthday card for her daughter who loves bling ... now I am due to go to NZ for a week tonight (to meet me brand new nephew!) and have very little time to put something together but I did manage to set aside  few hours this morning to attempt to make something so I am hoping she likes it ... not sure if I do!
I have followed the sketch from Feeling Sketchy, used ribbon and bows for Crafty Catz challenge and included bling for Cute Card Thursday.
materials - White cardstock, C'C Amaryllis cardstock; Teresa Collings 'spring fling' papers; Versa Color orchid, mint and turquoise inks; AnnaBelle Stamps 'party animals 1' stamps; Fiskars round the bend punch; Provocraft paisley embossing folder; Spellbinders labels 18 nesties; Mpress butterflies die; MFT little open scalloped edge and mini rolled roses.
Thanks for looking.
