21st Birthday

 It's hard to believe that it's been exactly a month since I've done any crafting!  My sister was here from Florida to help with Mom and Dad's garage sale as we get them ready to move to Florida permanently.  With this cold blast we got Friday, I wish I were moving too!  But I don't want to be that far from the grandkids.
Anyway, this is a consigment card requested by a friend of a friend for her daughter's 21st birthday.  All she asked for was "girly" so of course I had to go with pink!  Not sure where the DP comes from, but it had a slight trace of glitter so I covered the Spellbinders Lattice Pendant pieces with Sparkle N Sprinkle's White Spark embossing powder.  The hat pin is made from Stampin Up's Pretties box, now retired.  And the inside was done with my Silhouette cutting machine.  Now that I look at it again, the spacing is a little off, but it WAS 4:00 in the morning! Am I following my mother's night crafting footsteps?  I think so!

I will be entering this in the following challenges:
Card Makin Mamas - Anything, You Say?
Brown Sugar Challenges - Anything Goes
Clearly iStamp - Ribbon or Twine
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Raise the Bar - Think Pink
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Ribbon and/or Buttons

  5. Gerlinde, such an ELEGANT creation! So gorgeous with the pink, and of course, the sparkly EP. A card without any stamping, and it is a masterpiece! Your friend's daughter will be so appreciative, Gerlinde. So where in Florida are your parents moving? I wonder if they will be nearby my home?
