A Sassy 21st

I'm back as promised with a second card today. This is a card I made for a friend's daughter's 21st Birthday using one of my new Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie and my fave Henbury Lane papers. I bought this lace a while ago from Wild Orchid and it is quite a heavy lace. I think it is beautiful but it hasn't looked right on a ard until this one and I love the effect with the sparkly paper and MS punched border. I coloured the image with Promarkers and then sprayed Crafter's Companion spray and sparkle on it. The numbers were die cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix alphabet die.

Here's a closer look at the image
