Happy 21st Laura


If you visit regularly, and thanks so much to those of you that leave me comments, you may remember a very girly pink graduation card last week for Laura. This is her 21st card I was asked to make for her Grandad. I am so pleased with the way this one turned out, a card I would send myself, without the 21 of course! I love the shaby chic, distressed look and mounting on black card for a change makes the colours really stand out.

Image - Saturated Canary Nevaeh
Medium - Copics, Sakura Clearstar pen on her dress
Papers - HOTP Roses in Harmony
Dies - Marianne Parasol and butterflies, Sizzix film strip
Ribbon - Crafty Ribbons (it is actually the reverse of a keep calm ribbon)
Sentiment - LOTV
Punch - MS border
Other - Doily, chipboard letters, DI Victorian Velvet, pearls, pearl heart, shabby white frantage

Challenges
Saturated Canary Glamour and Glitz 
Charisma Girly
