Happy 21st Birthday Card!

This card was so much FUN to create...especially for my dear friend Lu's daughter's upcoming 21st birthday!   I know it's a little on the WILD side, but I think it's appropriate for such a special birthday, don't you?  :)

The base is 5-1/4" square of basic black cardstock, layered with the wild "zebra" print by gcd studios.  (Cosette Collection Item #048-Stars & Swirls)  The numbers 21 were cut out using my Cricut Cherry Limeade cartridge.   I blinged them up a bit with some silver brads and popped them up with dimensionals.  

The cool banner was stamped on the various colored cardstock using Versafine black onyx ink and my new itty bitty stamp set by UNITY Stamp Co.  {see my Ippity Chick... Shuggy! if you need any stamps!}  I used a 1/16" circle punch in the corners and tied it all together with black and white baker's twine.  {If you could use any of this great twine, I still have plenty in my Etsy Shop!}

 The inside....finished like the front!  :)

Thanks so much for all the comments on my last post!  You know I ♥ hearing from all of you and that warm fuzzy feeling it gives me.  *wink*   There were 2 dear readers interested in the April Scrapbook, Etc magazine so I put their names in a basket and the name I drew out is . . .

{drum roll, please...}
Love your card! I would love a chance to win this magazine. I am needing some major inspiration for scrapbooking as I need to get all caught up on my youngest scrapbook as he will be a senior next year!

I LOVE this card Pam! It's perfect for the 21st Birthday girl who's going to Las Vegas to celebrate in style!
Thank you so much for creating this for me. I love the banner, the black and white makes it 'wild' and the 21 numbers are tacked on so dang cute! I don't know correct terminology so I hope you get what I'm talking about. That's why you make cards and I don't! LOL
You're awesomely the best!!!
Smiles and Hugs!
