You're How Old?

I made this card for my uncle's 70th birthday and am entering the Allsorts 'Sentiment in Focus', Winter Wonderland 'Must use a Sentiment' and Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenges.  The papers were all from my snippets drawer, so I'm also popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 8" x 6" white silk tent fold
Stamp: Woodware 'Numbers'
InK: Memento Rich Cocoa
Colouring: Promarker - Blush
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: White card, brown, green, maroon and stripe papers

I layered a piece of maroon paper onto green paper and attached it to the card front. I stamped the numbers across a snippet of white card and added the extra sentiments above and below.  This was trimmed slightly and a strip of stripe paper was attached to the top and bottom.  This was then layered onto more strips of brown paper before being attached to the card front.  I coloured the numbers with a Blush Promarker and then paper pieced the '7' and '0' from maroon paper.  To finish, I highlighted the paper pieced numbers with a Wink of Stella.
