Numbered Birthday

Good morning everyone, the weekend is here again so it's time for crafting with us at Fantasy Stampers .
This week the lovely Jan has chosen the theme of -

 Numbered Birthday

We are always need a card like that, young or old, male or female. My inspiration for the DT is this pretty girlie card.


I  put a 60 on the card, however you could put any number you want. Wouldn't it be great to make a card with a personal touch and use the actual age of the recipient. Don't do what I did to my SiL though and made her a year older than she was! The sketch is also great for a guy's card just change the DP to a more masculine pallette and match your image colouring to the papers you choose.
I used some off cuts of my favourite Nit Wits Perfect Pear set from an other project as this sketch layout is great for using up odd bits n bobs. The trick is to bring the colours together in your image. The squares were punched out using a Woodware punch but you could just cut them using a paper trimmer. They were then placed on a matching piece of card leaving an even gap between the DP squares and mounted on a 6 x 6 white base card. I've kept it clean and simple without too many added extras.
This image is LOTV's New Hat stamp coloured with Copics as follows-
Pink - RV10,13,15
Green - YG11,13,17
Hat n Hair - YR21, E30,31,33,35,37
Skin - E000,00,11,R20

Right now it's your turn, pop over to Fantasy Stampers to check out what the other DT members have prepared for your inspiration and join in.
