21

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My oldest daughter turned 21 this week.  It is so hard to believe 21 years have passed since the day she came into this world.  She has matured into quite the young lady and I am so proud of her.  She is so sweet and beautiful on the inside as well as the outside and I feel so blessed to be her mom.

For her card I used the Shapes by Design set (PTI) on the bottom in Hawaiian Shores ink.  On the top portion of the card I used Dot Spot in Pure Poppy and Hawaiian Shores ink.  I cut a strip of pure poppy cardstock with the Medium scallop border die and used score tape to add the strips of glitter.  The numbers are cut with my Cricut using the Base Camp cartridge and run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I added a little bit of Pure Poppy twill ribbon tied around the number 2 and then adhered them to the card with foam tape to make them pop up a little.   The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Shapes by Design set. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a blessed day!

This is SO FUN!! Love all the dotties in the background and then on the numbers with the embossing folder. Ohhhh these kind of cards make me want to get a Cricut!

What a great BD card! The colors are fantastic and I love those embossed numbers. It's amazing how fast they grow up; my daughter will be 30 in August. Seems unbelievable.

Lots of great ideas on this card! I love how you used the tape to make the glittery borders and how you ran the numbers through the Cuttlebug to make them more interesting. The color choices are very nice, too. Great card!
