21st Birthday Card

Good morning,

I hope you have all had a wonderful start to the new year! Hubby and I had a quiet night in on NYE, whilst Sophie, James and his girlfriend Kelly were out partying at a friends house.

I haven't made any new year resolutions as such, but I do want to make a concerted effort to find more me/craft time this year as I failed miserably last year and ended up buying many shop bought cards for family and friends.

So on to my first card for 2016 which was actually one that I made at the beginning of December 2015. It was a request from one of James' work colleague's and the brief was for a 21st birthday and it had to have champagne on it somewhere. I found this image on Google and personalised it with the 'spraying 21's'  and also the recipients name on the bottle label. The green and yellow came about from the champagne bottle and I decided to keep the rest of the card fairly clean and saimple!

Hi Donna

WOW!! What a fun, fabulous card. You really are very clever to personalise your images ... I wouldn't know where to start!

I love the crisp white embossed background with the pop of yellow and green - just perfect!!

Hope you have a wonderful week and manage to find some 'me time'.

Love Eve xx

Fabulous card Donna and I am sure it will be greatly received. Glad the younger ones had fun celebrating the night away. I vaguely remember those days(Lol)

I know what you mean about time and yes I was ashamed to having to buy cards last year but not this year I hope!! Trying also to give myself time in between college as It is important I think !

The champagne bottle popping the 21's everywhere is brilliant. A great find. I found an image for a green sports car on line and bought it for hubbies B.Day in May. Bet I will forget I have it and go and use something else!! Hugs Mrs A.
