"Sisterly Love" 18th Birthday Card

My youngest daughter Emily will be 18 tomorrow. We are very lucky she is a real darling. The card i would like to share with you is the card i made for her from one of her brothers Edward. Trying to make cards for her has been very challenging. Just when i thought i was safe, she popped her head round the door " what you doing muma" The challenge when you make, cards is making some thing that is different, that family have not seen me make before.With 3 sibling and us to make and hide 4 cards has nearly sent me mad.
Materials i used

The main image is a Digital stamp called Anneka by From the Heart
Sister sentiment by From the heart
Hugs and kisses sentiment by stamping all day
Patterned paper is a paper stack by Die cuts with a view
Solid card stock, 2 shades of blue and green by American Crafts.
Promarkers dusty pink,blush,sun-kisses pink, coral, satin, sandstone, caramel, denim blue, April showers, pear green, lime green, warm grey 1,blue grey.
The number 18 I cut with my silhouette cameo.
