Cathy and Holly's Birthdays

Today is a big day in my youngest daughter's life. Not only is it Cathy's 18th birthday but,  by a fabulous coincidence, it's her horse Holly's birthday too. Holly is a year younger though, but they are both beautiful and very clever. Unfortunately, it's also the first day of Cathy's A2 exams ~ Good Luck Cathy ~  so the boozy celebrations have been put on hold for now.

I created a wrap for Cathy's card by cutting out the number 18 from Adorable Scorable card and decorating it with a Whimsy corner die, some flowers and gems.

I used a paper and a champagne glass image from an MCS CD. The digi image is one of my favourites, Emma, from Simply Betty. I wanted to keep the colours of the card vintage and after having watched Sarah Hurley's sepia demo, I thought the colouring would suit this image perfectly.

I made a card for Cathy to give to Holly using the Jem's Designs CD Free Spirits. I added glitter to the image, some lace and punched horseshoes. 

As you can see, the image on the card isn't a bad match to Holly herself, apart from her white blaze.

Happy 18th Birthday Cathy!
