Funky 18th Birthday

Today I am having a wedding free day, I woke up so excited knowing that I was just going to make normal cards today!!!!! My friend has ordered 4 cards from me. Her Niece is 18 and her Dad 65 so she wanted a card for each of them and then also cards from her boys!
This is the card for her boys to give their cousin. Decided to go with a cocktail/Sex and the City type theme with the Black and Hot pink, aka Basic Black and Pink Passion!!
The papers are from the Night and Day set which are only available for a limited time!!
The word Cousin has been stamped using the Just Perfect alphabet and the Stamp a ma jig to get it straight!!! Stamped in Basic Black in and then black gingham ribbon added above it. I put a little slit along the spine for the ribbon to go through.

The cocktails have been coloured in with my Stampin Write markers and the colours used are Pixie Pink, Only Orange and Gable Green.

As you can see I cut the orange and the umbrella out again and decoupaged with dimensionals!

The cocktails were punched out using the 1 3/8 punch and then the 1 3/4 punch.

The number 18 is from the Schoolbook Serif alphabet.
I have to say this is one card that I really love and I dont want to give it away!!!!! I would love a card like this for my birthday, its just so me!!!! Plus I would also love to be 18 again!!!!! ha ha!!!
Right I am going to get a few jobs done now I have made the 4 cards, will be back tomorrow with a mans card for you
