Lauren's 21st.

Today is my God-daughter's 21st birthday. Happy birthday Lauren Rhian :)
This is the card that I made for her.
I wanted to make this card after seeing Karen Burniston's fab card. Unfortunately though, I don't own the pop-up die that she used, so I just cut a couple of slits in the inside base so that it made a pop-up tab for me to add the cake image to...

The spotty paper was a piece of 12x12 from my paper stash, I'm not sure of the brand, but I think it may be by Papermania.
I've used my SU eyelet border punch to edge the pink inside card, and used a die from Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Elements 'Elegant Ovals' to frame where I wrote my greeting.
The balloons were die cut and then embossed using Cuttlebug's Disney combo set (Celebrations).
I used Die-namics 'By The Letter' dies to cut Lauren's name then glued the letters to hand-cut banner shapes, which were then glued to a piece of gold twine which dangles across the card.

The cake image which pops up is from the Milestone Birthday Set by DigiStamp Boutique.
I tucked the bunting behind the image to take a photo so that you can see it...

I'd like to enter this card at:
DigiStamp Boutique - July customer competition
Fantastic Tuesday - anything goes (twist: make it feminine)
