Last Minute Birthday Request

Hi Folks 
Hope you are all well.  Only one more day at work and then it is the weekend.  I think my daughters are planning for the christmas tree to go up this weekend so looks like I will be busy on Sunday.  

Today's card share is a quick one that I threw together at my daughter's request.  I got home from work today and she asked me if I had time to put together a 21st birthday card for tomorrow night.  I could probably have said no but like to oblige if I can.  This is what I came up with.  A bit different for me but I kinda like it.

For the topper I used two different shades of mulberry paper.  I tore the paper into squares and matted one on top of the other.  I then used a stencil I have for the numbers and used gems to create the 21.  This was then matted onto some white card and then some holographic mirror card.  I went around the edge of the white card with some doodling.  For embellishments I added a couple of flowers, a parchment butterfly and lots of little pears.  A sentiment in the bottom corner finished off the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
