I had a blast creating a card for Pollycraft's current challenge: Special Birthday.  A friend of mine is turning 21 in a little bit, and I was very excited to create her card.

The image is from Pollycraft, and having a drink in hand is the perfect way to celebrate the 21st birthday!  =)  The frame is a cut file by Ileana at I Scrap Designs.  The image is colored using Copics, the buttons and frame are highlighted with Crystal Stickles, and the sentiment is written with a purple souffle pen and outlined with a light purple Le Plume marker.

This card was also created for a Desert Islands Itinerary challenge.  The challenge is to incorporate at least three items from the following itinerary in your card: 

1. Monochromatic
2. Movie or Book inspired
3. Buttons
4. The word “ FRIEND(S)” in your sentiment
5. Border Punch
6. Only one pattern paper
7. The color Red
8. No flowers
9. Swirls
10. Sparkle

The items I chose were #3 buttons, #4 the word "friend", #8 no flowers, #9 swirls and #10 sparkle.

The sparkle is kind of hard to see, so here's a close up of the corner so you can get a general idea of what it looks like in real life.

I hope you like the card....and I hope my friend does, too!  =)  Thanks for stopping by.  See you soon!
