4 EVER 21!

My daughter Stephanie is turning 21 on the 16th! I want to make a birthday card just for her as she was also my lucky charm. My last year's birthday card for her won a 2nd place in the Hero Arts Challenge (see here).  This time I found 2sketches4you ( 2S4Y)  sketch which came in handy!
Knowing Stephanie, she loves clean, simple and smart designs. Lavender is her favorite color.
 
The most time-consuming part of making this card was the pink bow and the candle (yes, Starbucks coffee sleeves!). Love the texture of the coffee sleeeves give, you know, I love that stuff ! I think it's worth the effort!
Happy Birthday, my sweet Stephanie! Wish you the BEST year ever!

What a SWEET card, Virginia! I LOVE the soft color palette that you chose......it is PERFECT! Stephanie will love the "airy" feel that it has, especially since she is a "Spring" baby! TERRIFIC DESIGN, I must add. Sure hope that Stephanie's day is filled with BIG SMILES......I KNOW it will be if she spends time with her family! Love, Karen xoxo
