21 Today!

Hi there!

Today is the birthday of our youngest daughter, and yes, it's official, she's all grown up.

                                                                            * TWENTY ONE today!  *

She will be home on Saturday and for the first time in a long time our family of 4 will be together in ONE country , under ONE roof! So excited!

This is the card I made for her birthday :

Up close:

She loves stripes, so I went with for a fresh & modern graphic look.

I designed the BG in the Silhouette studio, cut it from pink and navy card stock with my cameo and adhered it to the card base.

As focal point, I choose to combine the 21 (cut with my cameo) with a beautiful flower from the Mon-ami set by Casual Friday stamps.

The misti makes this kind of double stamping just so much easier!

I added 5 rhinestones to complete the design.

Really happy to say this looks just the way I envisioned!

Playing at:

Thanks for looking!
Have a great day 🌸

Stunning, graphic gloriousness!!! The colors rock this design! I am so going to add this card to my "Must CASE Hannelie Cards" list!

You sound so excited! Nothing in this world beats the feeling of laying down at night knowing that your entire family is under one roof, safe and snug heir beds! Enjoy!

Love it when the card you picture in your head turns out perfectly! This is a real beauty and I'm guessing Miss '21' is going to love it when she sees it! Such pretty colors, too! Have a wonderful time together with all four of you together again!! There's nothing quite like family.... Bev

Happy Birthday to your daughter. I know she'll love this card. I do with the colorful stripes and the unique was you announced the 21. Have a wonderful time with all your family. As children get older, it seems those times get fewer and farther between. Enjoy every minute.
