Gaby is 21 tomorrow! Imagine That!

It's so hard to imagine that my granddaughter turns 21 tomorrow.  It's not difficult, at all, to imagine that I put off making her card until today.  I am pretty good at procrastinating.

The peacock and sentiment on the front of the card are from March's Stamp of the Month digi set Pretty Peacocks at Imagine That...digis by Kris.  Kris, this is a gorgeous set.  Thanks so much!  
I printed, fussy cut and layered the image.  The peacock feathers received a brush of glitter.  I've used some CTMH Fundamentals embossed paper(purple hearts, double sided) and Glitter paper.  The numbers were cut on the cricut using the CTMH Artiste cartridge.  And then I added lots of bling.  I wrote the inside sentiment and printed it on the computer, but the digi set has a nice birthday sentiment, too.

I am entering this birthday card in the 

This card is also entered in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create Challenge #114 - Anything Goes (optional twist-aquamarine, which you'll find in the peacock's tail feathers) 
Dragonfly Dreams Challenge #15 - Add some embellishments
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge #127 - Decorate the inside and outside
Corrosive Challenge #219 - Follow Your Heart (obviously the paper has hearts, but I love the ones in the peacock feathers)

Today, I've made a second card using the same Pretty Peacocks digi set.  I like the fact that the set includes multiple sentiments, making it very versatile.  

For this card I used 3 different sizes of Spellbinders scalloped ovals to layer the flowers.
