Happy Birthday

Just a quick post after a busy weekend.  I came across this DCWV Nana's Kids paper pad on the weekend and decided that I would make a card for my nephew who will be turning 5.   I have been wanting to try this technique of die cutting the number out of my paper and using it, not the number.  I was pleased with the way it turned out.  I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp-tember challenge and the Anything Goes Challenge.



Cardstock:  New Leaf (PTI)
Patterned paper: Orange Zest Paper Pack (PTI), Nana's Kids (DCWV)
Stamps: Birthday's By the Numbers
Ink:  True Black
Dies: By the Numbers

What a great idea for a number treatment, Tracey, and that paper is perfect! (I'll be curious if the little guy tries to lift the 5 off the card, because it really stands out!!)
