21st Birthday

You know one of those cards you wish you hadn't started and gone out and bought one instead, this is said card!

Because it's my niece's 21st I wanted to do her something different to my usual square cards.  No problem with the constructions of the base card.  The problems came with the rest of the card, I couldn't make up my mind where to position things, whether to mat the 21 onto a Nesties rectangle and then position it onto the base card or stick it directly on, etc.,etc, etc. It's been a nightmare.  Anyway, hope she likes it, especially as it took soooo long to make.

I've decided to enter this into the following challenges:

My optional additon of something old to my Papertake card is my Bella image - she is one of the first ones I bought some years ago.
