Twenty one today

It will be my niece's twenty first birthday on 18th January and this is the card that I have made for her.  It took me ages to decide on the design because she is not a girly sort of girl and she is not into cute and cuddly - not much left I hear you say.  I hope she will like this:

The papers are all from one of my Bearly Mine Designs Cd's and are layered onto black card stock.  The flower and leaves are cut from the same black card stock and some red.  I tied a twine bow on a button from my stash and added it to the centre of the flower and just added a few red gems to finish the card .  The sentiment was produced on the computer and layered onto the red card stock.

This is the inside of my card, I have decorated it to complement the front:

I wold like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Moving Along with the Times Challenge 130 - Spots and/or stripes
Simon Says Stamp - Spots and/or Stripes
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge 101 - Celebration (twenty first birthday)
Simply Create Too Challenge 4 - Layers
Charisma Cardz Challenge 1 - Happy Birthday
Going Buggy Challenge - Black, white and red

I just thought I would mention that I have finally converted to Google Chrome after putting it off for ages, well why did I not do this before.  All the blogger problems that I have been experiencing have been resolved, it is so much faster and after just a few teething problems, mainly me being silly, I really love it.  So if you like me are putting of the decision I would say don't, bite the bullet and just do it, you won't regret it.

Thank you for stopping by, hope to see you again soon.

Very modern and stylish Pauline. I'm sure she will love it.
I've gone Chrome as well. I sort of alternate between the two. Chrome is brilliant with Blogger but I prefer IE for browsing generally.
