21

 One of the young men at our church just turned 21.  Oh, to be 21 again!  I'm going to be double that this year; yikes!  Anyway, I made this card to celebrate him.  It all began with the turquoise stars.  I had several of them left over from a baby shower and have been trying to use them--masculine cards are perfect!  I used black for some bold accents and black glitter paper for the focal point.


In the photo below, you can see all that lovely sparkle!

It’s the foundation of any smoothie formula, Portoblend review however natural product assumes a lot bigger part than just adding pleasantness. Natural product is an astounding wellspring of fiber and the “great” sort of carbs that fill in,
