Stampin' Up! Timeless Type in the Big Shot and I create a 21st Birthday Card

Hi Guys! I have another card to share with you today, this one will be heading out to a special friend who is celebrating her 21st birthday soon!
I used Stampin' Up!'s current in colour Wild Wisteria as a card base (I find purple so difficult to work with!) and layered it with some American Crafts patterned paper, then I got out my Stampin' Write Markers and coloured this gorgeous stamp from The Greeting Farm. I fussy cut her out, and stuck her onto some Whisper White which was layered on to Wisteria Wonder. I wrapped some wide grosgrain ribbon around the card and the popped a scallop circle and regular circle on. I got a piece of scrap white card, covered it in VersaMark, while it was still wet, I poured over a mixture (that I'd pre-prepared) of silver embossing powder and glitter, and heat set it, using my heat gun... With the embossed and glittery paper, I popped it through the Big Shot using the Timeless Type sizzlet and then glued them onto the circles. I added a few little flowers from my stash. 
I used inspiration from the Deconstructed Sketch, and also the Just Add Ink, Just Add Sparkle challenge
Thanks as always for popping by!
Happy Stamping!
