Happy 35th Birthday

I made this card for my nephew's birthday and am entering Stamping Sensations 'One for the Boys' challenge, Classic Design Team Open Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'. The paper and card was from my snippets drawer so I'm also visiting the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: White DL silk
Stamp: Woodware 'Numbers'
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia
Colouring: Faber-Castell coloured pencils
Snippets: Brown matt and white silk card, Lili of the Valley 'Enchantment' paper

I attached a piece of Enchantment paper to centre of the card blank.  I stamped the numbers onto white card and then stamped the two smaller sentiment stamps above and below.  I coloured the numbers to match the papers, highlighting my nephew's age!  This strip was trimmed, layered onto brown card and attached across the centre of the card.

Hi Kath, I love the card. Can see this being used for male or female with just changing the colours.

Hope you've had a lovely day. Sue

What a fabulous idea Kath! So long as the numbers appear in the right sequence it's a design I think could be used over and over again! Great stuff!
