21st Birthday

This is a 21st birthday card I have been asked to make and is one which was inspired by the very talented Gill Prescott (see her card here). Gill not only makes beautiful cards but she also makes fantastic cakes - pop over to her blog and you can't fail to be inspired as well!
I have used Pool Party and Brushed Silver for the flowers, made with the Blossom Party die and a punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes pack.The sentiment is made up from individual stamps in the Memorable Moments set, although this is one of the more expensive SU sets I find it invaluable as you are able to make any combination of numbers (great for kids who like to be reminded of their age!) and also has an 'anniversary'  as well as the 'birthday' stamp. This was silver embossed and then cut with a die from the Labels Collection Framelits before matting onto a larger Pool Party diecut. Three loops of Pool Party ribbon (a freebie in the SAB ribbon & buttons pack) were placed onto the card before fixing the sentiment panel with dimensionals. As you probably know I like to make a matching bag for special cards so here it is

The retired sentiment was cut with an Apothecary Accents die.
