Happy 21st Birthday

Afternoon stampers,

Yesterday it was my younger sisters 21st birthday.
(oh to be 21 again)
She is having a celebration in May along with my father who will be turning 60 in June.
but as yesterday was her birthday, i decided to give her her card and not wait, as it is not the same as receiving it in May on the day of their party.
  She commented that it didn't feel like her birthday as everyone was waiting until the big day in May.
I also gave her a big bunch of flowers to go along with her card, she was very happy with both.

With it being a special birthday i wanted to do something a little different, so after seeing the twisted easel on a few blogs lately i decided that this style would have the wow factor i wanted.

Here is her card lying flat

And here is it opened

i am very happy with the outcome.
I have even added a little bit of bling, what girl doesn't want a bit of bling.
This card got a big wow from my whole family, so i guess this is a winner.
With this card i was able to play with quiet a few new/unused items,
 the Sweet Summer stamp set
my Nestabilities,
Circle Cutter, 

I should have a few creations to showcase from here on in, as my card needing drought is over for a while.
This week alone i have four cards to make,
two birthdays, a thank you and one engagement card.

I will blog them all as soon as i can.
Until then go on out and enjoy this wonderful day we have on hand.
(well in Hamilton is it so lovely)
