Well my friends, as you can see I have created another 18th birthday card, this one is for another of my daughter's friends.  They are all starting to turn 18th, and this includes my lovely daughter, who will turn 18 this next Thursday.  They are also just starting college and that's why I choose this cute Mo Manning college student.  I used one of my favorites color combo, red-yellow-blue. 

Before we take a look at my card, I want to let you know this will be my last post as a Loves Rubberstamps DT.  It has been an honor to be part of such a talented group of ladies. The decision was not easy because this has been a magnificent part of my card making and crafting journey. I want to thank Laura and the rest of the team for the opportunity to share my projects with you and for all the fun moments.  And there are more fun moments and surprises coming your way, because Laura has amazing projects coming soon, you don't want to miss them!

And now, lets take a look at my card:
