Milestone Moments 18th birthday card

Hi there again,

One of my favourite sets in the 2017 Spring Summer catalogue is the Milestone Moments stamp set. I have used that set to make this very CAS (clean and simple) card.
Milestone moments from Stampin' Up!

 Those of you who have been following me for any length of time will know that my style is always very plain and simple, but I think have excelled myself this time! However, I love it!

Milestone Moments and Large Letter dies - Stampin' Up!

Here is a close up of the stamp set I used - again great value at only £19.00 for 18 stamps. And for once I think I will use every single one of those stamps - as well as the number words there are some great sentiments in a lovely font.
 I have had a little business selling my handmade cards online for several years and as part of that have probably sold hundreds of "milestone" cards, but always with the numbers in digit form. Having them in word form is a different take on these. 

Once again I am entering the Less is More challenge with this card - this week the brief is "alphabet". 

 There are some lovely cards in this week's challenge - do pop over and have a look! Will be back soon,
