18th birthday

Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem:
Don’t excite love, don’t stir it up,
until the time is ripe—and you’re ready.

Song of Soloman 8:4

I love the verse above – it seems just perfect to place with an 18th birthday card.    This card is made for the beautiful daughter of a dear friend, who loves owls.  I bought the gem 18 and owl at the Hobbycrfats show in Birmingham.   The leaves and sentiment are cut from craft-core Cordinations card using Spellbinders dies and the tree was cut by hand from the same card and run through a Darice embossing folder before being distressed.  The card is mounted onto a kraft card base.
