James 21st Birthday (Brother)

Good morning,

I'm still trying to play catch up with some cards I've recently made but haven't had time to blog and today's card was made for James' 21st Birthday in April. The design was cased from a card I spotted on Pinterest and the original can be viewed here. I knew I wanted a black and white design and I absolutely fell in love with the layout, such a clean and simple design which is perfect for the occasion.

Here are some piccy's of the personalised balloons we had made (first photo courtesy of Kew Designs) and also the cake that was made by a local baker...she did a cracking job and the cake was so scrummy!

Card Stock: White A4 Hammered & Mirri card from HobbyCraft & Black Card Stock from Ebay
Embellishments: Gems, Ribbon and Silver Buckle Ribbon slider from my craft stash
Tools: Cricut Expression to cut 'Son' lettering and big and small stars
Sentiment: Created on the computer using 'Calamity Jane NF' font
