Sophie's 21st

Hello bloggers and a very happy weekend to you all, I hope the sun is shining where you are and spring has started to sprung!
Today I want to share with you a card I have made for my friends daughter Sophie, for her 21st birthday. I rushed to get it made because I wanted to enter it into the  colour challenge at Ribbon Girl their colours are 'Pink, Brown & Cream' and those of you that know me will know I cannot miss an opportunity to use my all time favourite Making Memories papers.

Crafty Catz challenge this week is 'Special Birthdays' and they don't come more special than your 21st. Papertake weekly have 'Anything Goes' Totally Stampalicious have a 'Recipe Challenge' of '1 Ribbon, 2 Patterned Papers & 3 Embellishments (I've used flowers, chipboard and gems). Cupcake Craft Challenge want to see 'Anything but Squares' on our cards - I hope my circles count even though they are on a square card!  ABC challenge are on 'P' which is for Pink this week. The stamp is a Bike-a-Bella and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts whose challenge is 'Anything Goes'. I have used my Magnolia Doo Hickey Lace Border Die, Nesties, a Martha Stewart leaf punch, ribbon, chipboard numbers and rub on sentiment are from my stash.

Thank you for looking and many many thanks to my lovely followers, I promise I will get round to visiting you all soon
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x
