Less is More - 65 - sketch

Its been a wet day in Hampshire today, and it just happens that its my youngest daughter's 18th birthday this week, so I've made a card.  Well this is attempt number 2 - my first attempt involved trying to do a 'Kath Kidson' inspired design using the SU little blossoms and a masked 18 but the background was too busy and was fighting with the 18.  I turned the card over, and went more monochrome, and this was what I came up with:

Less is More - week 65 - sketch:
My version:

The flower is Kathy Davis and the sentiment is SU. 

Not sure where the last 18 years have gone.   Happy Birthday, baby xx


  1. Super card Anna... I don't know where the years go either!
    Thanks so much

  2. That is funny. My first attempt did the exact same thing, fighting with the background.
    Congrats on your daughter. Special isn't it, when they turn 18. I am a lucky mom, I have a little one who is just 3.

    I love your card, this background is perfect with the 18. And the colours are fab.


  3. Oooh, like how the numbers are the focus of your card! Interesting idea with masking them ... I may have to play around with that. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is lovely Anna! Happy 18th to your daughter too :) Sarah x

  5. Super card Anna
    Best not to think as to where the years go I say!
    Thank you very much
