A commissioned card - for a 21st birthday

Hello lovely bloggers,

Belated Mother's Day greetings to all you sweet ladies out there...

I took my mum and two friends out for a movie  (Mirror, Mirror) along with my daughters and our visitor 
yesterday and everyone enjoyed that. It was Aleeza's first time in a movie hall and she seemed to handle it quite well even though it was not really meant for her... So I took her out of the hall and let her buy a dress she liked to lessen the negative impact of the movie on her. She seemed thrilled with that.

This card has been ordered for a 21 year old gal who likes bags... 
Don't know why I put a shoe image instead!!! Hopefully she will be happy with it.
The steel greyish blue paper is pearlized and I have glittered the shoe which is a clear stamp from Hero Arts. The gems are from my stash and so is the ribbon. The flower is a Sizzix die cut and it has been mounted on foam dots. At the bottom I have used my EK success border punch. I embossed the flower and one of the rectangular panels behind the shoe to give some texture. 21 has been handwritten with a metallic pen - wish it was more visible in the picture. Tried to make the card as flat as possible because it is going to be snail-mailed to the UK.



Will come and visit later on... Aleeza is just back from school!

Hugs and have a nice Monday,

Monica
