Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and it was my turn to choose the theme. I thought that since we are getting so close to the festive season some sparkle and shine would be fun!
Of course, you can always play along with the anything goes birthday option too.
My team mates and our party guest Julie have some wonderful ideas to inspire you, so I hope you can play along.
I was asked to make a 21st card and thought I'd reuse a design from quite a few years ago.
I've used silver embossing glitter on the stamped stars background, and vintage peacock embossing glitter on the sentiment, numbers and edge of the tag. I found some glitter cardstock in my stash to diecut the balloons from.
Here's a closer look at the sparkle.
I'm linking up to these challenges:

Super card, Cathy. The dark background makes the beautiful sparkly tag 'pop'. xx
Such beautiful colours Cathy with the silver and champagne colour glitter card balloons and the blue and silver embossing for the sentiment and number and the pretty background stars, and a great contrast using the black card. x
So much sparkle and shine! Perfect for a 21st birthday card. Thanks for picking a fun theme - and for linking this to Inkspirational!
Cathy, this is a great challenge to close out a challenging year! I know it's not over yet, but I soon. I think that birthday cards should be sparkly and this is perfect for a 21 year old.
You chose the theme well, especially this time of year. Your card is lovely and it sure sparkles and shines!
Perfectly shiny 21st card!
Gorgeous sparkle and shine! I like the black base - it really lets the shine sing out. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

As you said it is a perfect topping for our last challenge of the year! Your sparkly birthday card is gorgeous! The silver glitter and vintage peacock embossing go so well together and pop off the black base!

Cute card, love the tag on your card with that bold word. Thanks for playing along with Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.
What a great CAS tag-focused design! I love the addition of the glitter paper and the simple color palette would make this the perfect birthday card for anyone! Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing this at the Retro Rubber Challenge #148 - They Say It's Your Birthday!
