Birthday 18

I made this for our grandaughter Eva's 18th birthday.
I always think 18 is such a lovely age when teenage girls turn into young women - hence the butterflies.

The colour scheme is crisp lime and royal blue, even though the lime looks yellowish in the photos (it's actually the same colour as the ribbon!).
There is a tag in a hidden pocket in the top for our message, and a couple of tiny fairies tucked in - Eva was a fairy fanatic before she decided to be a tomboy.

Eva and 18 dies: Sizzix Mac
HB die: unbranded
Star dies: Creative Scrapbooking
Butterflies (cut in gold glitter card): Memory Box
Tag: nCraft
Hugs die: Simon Says
Little fairy stamp: unknown
Coloured with Copics, Wink of Stella
Various papers:
lime glitter card, gold glitter card, ribbon
