Cheers! Happy 21st

Hi Friends!
Today I have a bright and fun 21st birthday card to share (yes another reject but it's still wonderful in my eyes).  I combined 4 different sets to create this card and had lots of fun playing with some of the new seasonal distress ink colors to create the circle element too. (forgive my phone pic but it showed the colors & dimension better than the one I took with my real camera, weird) 

I created the background by clear embossing the {adult}beverage image from Lawn Fawn's Swimsuit Season set. :)  The circle badge I created by cutting my circles from watercolor paper, clear embossing my letters/numbers and then picking up the distress inks mixed with water off my craft mat.  I love the fun tie-dyed sort of look it gives. I did the same technique with the "Cheers" sentiment flag.  I popped the badge shape up on foam to leave space for the ribbon, embossed vellum & sentiment banners to go.  I also added glossy accents to the numbers.

CHA is getting closer by the day, and today you can see 5 of the 10 new Lawn Fawn sets revealed on the Lawn Fawn blog.  Run, don't walk, and go check them out HERE. I would tell you which is my favorite but I can't, I love them all! :)

Thanks for stopping by today!!! :)
