STB It's Just A Number

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "It's Just A Number". However, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours!

I needed a 70th Birthday card for a friend, so the timing of this challenge worked perfectly for me. I used three sets from Altenew for my images and sentiment, and the numbers are from a Mama Elephant set. It was fun to create my floral 'bouquet' around the oval panel in the middle.

Here's my card inside. I thought the sentiment was great for a 70th, as well as echoing the challenge theme. 

Stamp Sets: Painted Flowers, Painted Butterflies, Birthday Greetings (Altenew), Bella Letters (Mama Elephant)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Black, Fog (Simon Says Stamp)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Forest Glades, Frayed Leaf, Evening Gray (Altenew)
Tools: Big Shot, Painted Flowers Die, Painted Butterflies Dies, (Altenew), Layering Oval Dies (Stampin' Up)

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday. We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

Oh Wow! I love the artsy look to this card. I am certainly going to be making one very similar if not the exact same one.
