Colourful 18th Birthday

Its my lovely nieces 18th birthday soon. Shes such a wacky dresser - bold colours - odd shoes and socks so I thought the colour scheme over at http://housemouse-challenge.blogspot.co.uk would be great for her personality.
This stamp is from the House Mouse set -"Birthdays-ice cream". I coloured the image using copics following the colour theme of orange, purple, lime green and black.
I cut the 18th from card using chipboard templates and  then inked it with vivid inks and used a clear embossing powder to give it shine.




This is part of my card which I chose an easel design. I added the flowers from Prima essentials - strawberry kisses and added mathcing card candi centres.

This is the base of the easel with more flowers a lovely sentiment and some black and orange ribbon. There is also 2 bead decorated hat pins and 3 purple gems.

Here is my finished card - thanks for looking xx

I would like to enter it in the following challenges -
