Twenty First Birthday

I had a card to make for a friend and namesake who is 21 today and I wanted to make it personally for her so I drew the image to suit.This is "Ruth at the piano!"
She loves fancy shoes and BIG belts!

I was happy to see that this fits with the challenge at One stop Craft ....make it personal and
Our Creative
Frosted Designs...embossing (the flowers)
Daring Cardmakers...schooldays (music lesson)

I got the music "ribbon" yesterday in a sale and didn't realize till I got home that it was self adhesive. It comes white so I coloured it black with a Promarker.
The wording was made using Monde de Blonde Sizzix dies.

Max, the Westie has gone home and I wasn't able to get a photo. We have looked after him for holidays for 6 years and it's only lately that he has decided that he doesn't like cameras.I'm really not too sure what has happened.

Hope you are all enjoying the snow! We have had lots more last night and today!
