Couture Creations Birthday Card

Hello there everyone, 
is it my turn again today here at Couture Creations.
Today I have a Card that I have created for a young teenager who is turning "15".

Using card stock from Core'dinations called Black Magic and
Couture Creations - Peacock Pleasure embossing folder from the Fresh & Fun collection
Sanding block, and Glitzing Glamour Gold Glitter

Embossed the cardstock with the Peacock Pleasure embossing folder
from the Fresh & Fun collection

I lightly sanded the cardstock with the Couture Creations Sanding Block 
this show up the blue cardstock underneath the black. 
A Very striking effect , then I applied some 
Glitzing Glamour Gold Glitter in the centres of each embossed circle,
 and leave to dry.

I embossed some blue cardstock and made it
into a fish tail banner and
then applied some chipboards numerals which I painted
gold paint and applied Glitzing Glamour Gold Glitter 

Once dry, I applied it to some cardstock to create the card.
Very simple and easy.
