Star-themed 21st Birthday Card

I was asked to make an un-fussy birthday card for the grandson of a colleague at work for his 21st birthday and I turned to my collection of dies and embossing folders for inspiration...

The star embossing folder inspired me to use a star as background for the die-cut numbers. I added the swirly lines die behind the mirri star and a simple greeting created in Publisher.

It was very simple to make but the heavy embossing and shiny star make it look 'special'.

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Arty Divas Challenge #2 - anything goes
Creative Knockouts Challenge #311 - sparkle and shine
Southern Girls Challenge - masculine TOP PICK
Allsorts Challenge #532/3 - sun/moon/stars/baby TOP 5
Dragonfly Dreams Challenge August - no patterned paper

Thanks for visiting
