Happy "21" to my DD

My middle child turned 21 last Saturday (Legal drinking age in AZ) Today we are having her Family Birthday party, I am sure you can guess what she did ON her actual BD!! :O

This card also doubles as my take on the "My paper world" challenge that ends on March 8th. http://mypaperworld.blogspot.com/

This is one of my new Bella stamps that I colored with colored pencils & added a little stickles. All of the paper is from a paper pack from Colorbook that I picked up at Wallmart.

I used the scallop circle punch & the 1 1/2" circle punch from SU. I inked all the edges with SU Tempting Turquoise....seems to blend all the colors together a little better.

The little dots on the sides are actually little 3D stickers from Joann's Fabric store. I used a circle stamp from Paper Trey with SU Certainly Celery to line the white circle & the 21 is from Michael's crafts #'s set. Then I popped that up & that is it!!!

Very fun challenge...you should give it a try! NOW I have a VERY long list of projects calling my attention PLUS...I have to bake a BD cake today!!! YIKES!! trust me...I am much better with the paper stuff! Things you don't have to eat!

Wish me luck!!
