Birthday Celebration!

Today's card is for a friend who celebrates her birthday in a few days time. I have adapted a download which is actually for a wedding/anniversary card. It's an easel card in pink and black, and can be purchased from here.
The main section is decoupaged and I added an extra layer (the oval label on the champagne bottle) then used glitterations peel-offs to put my friend's name on the bottle!
The bottom section has a 'stopper' raised using foam pads, and I coloured a silver peel off using a black sakura glaze pen, and added it to the label on the stopper.
I added a panel to the back to write my message. I am still not sure whether to add a few small gems, or leave it as it is.......?

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
 Charisma Cardz Challenge week#41 ~ 'More than 1 fold.'
 Pocket Full of Posies challenge #9 ~ 'Champagne & Roses/Celebration.'
Thanks for stopping by!

Smiles from Ali x

The black and pink work so well together don't they? Looks very classy! I think it's perfect without any sparkle :)
