18th Birthday card for LOTV

Hello lovely peeps

I've got an 18th Birthday card for you today, using one of the Thoroughly Modern Misses from Lili of the Valley.

The card was designed using CraftArtist2 - this version allows you to make your own punches.
Using the text tool I typed an 8 in the Apple Boy Btn font then pressed the Select tool and dragged the 8 into the 'My Digikit' section of Punches.

I added some of the digi papers from the Barista set from Basic Grey into the Photos section and dragged them onto the workspace then dragged the 8 punch over the top of one of them and punched it out.

To add a black outline I selected a solid line from the Lines tab and changed the line width to 1.0 pt (highlighted in blue below)

I arranged the patterned 8 on top of another couple of papers then dragged on 'September' and resized her to match. After printing off my project onto Simply The Best 300gsm card (Limetree crafts) I coloured September in with Promarkers/Graph'Its.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Addicted to CAS #133 Rain (umbrella)
Stamping Sensations One for the girls
Retarte  #118 Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by,
Katrina x
