21 Congratulations STS #17

When you ask young girls what their favourite colours are, they usually answer pink or purple. By 21 they probably have revised their faves, I'll definitely have to survey some young women to find that out! I decided to go with Strawberry Slush and Wild Wisteria with a dash of bling for this Happy Congratulations card.

This stamp set is great! Great for weddings, 21st birthdays, Graduation, even new babies and definitely Chinese New Year. There are 4 stamps: the string of paper lanterns, a single lantern so you can colour them any shade, either directly or on scrap and punched out ever-so-easily with a three quarter inch circle punch. There is the Congratulations sentiment and the 4th stamp says, "may happiness be your destination".

To finish, I used Memorable Moments for the numbers, the 'hearts' out of the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder set (3) topped with a silver Glimmer Paper arrow from the On Film Framelit Dies. There's even a scattering of rhinestones, as befits such a celebration!

Although the sketch has been rotated, and the shape changed up a bit, it was the sketch at Seize the Sketch which was the start-point for my card,

Have a great week, thanks for popping by


  1. I agree all little girls love pink and purple until they hit about 12.
