18th Birthday Card.

My husband's colleague has a daughter's 18th birthday coming up and asked me if I would make a card for her. I had made a card for her niece last year and something similar was required; similar tastes, hobbies, loves sun bathing etc - you get the picture. Isn't this the most difficult thing to do?  I must admit I struggled with the project but in the end I came up with this. Her favourite colours are purples and mauves. I also made an extra wide envelope box to hold it.

I do hope she likes it.
