Happy 18th Birthday Will!

Happy Birthday Will! All of a sudden my baby boy has grown up! All the way up to 6'3" or is it 6'4"? Anyway, while stuck for a card idea I had the mad idea of stamping 18 champagne bottles. Now these would have been ideal as a digi so I could re-size them but I don't have a digi and I do have a very good champagne bottle stamp from Elusive Images, so I cut out 18 of them, coloured them, stamped some on the card, glued some down and popped some up on 3d foam pads. The green bottles are coloured with H20 paint and the red and gold are Promarkers. With a few foam pads under corks and the number stamps from Dimension Fourth the card was finished.

I had an idea there were lots of challenges around at the moment for birthday cards but I could only find Charisma Cards anything but Christmas challenge :)


  1. Happy 18th Birthday to Will. I hope he has a great day. They grow so fast don't they.
    I love your chapagne bottles, I'm sure there will be plenty flowing in your family over the next few days.
    Have a great weekend


    P.S. I love your falling snow!!!
    Have you got any of the real stuff, we've got about 2" today but the suns out and it's beautiful now!
