Birthday Ages

Good morning all on a rather hot and sunny Friday morning, the summer has certainly returned this last few days and I put my woollies away again.
We have a new challenge for you over at Polka Doodles chosen this time by Colette and she would like to see cards with an Age on. My younger daughter and all her friends will soon be turning 21 so I decided to get a head start on the cards.


I've gone for pretty pastels using a yellow stitched style paper from the Double Sprinkle Of Kraft CD with a border of pretty pink paper which was a leftover scrap from the Sundae Of Seasons CD.
I printed out the numbers (Double Sprinkle CD) on very smooth card, cut out into a circle and clear embossed it before the ink dried. I put this on a contrast scalloped mat.
I finished off with a lovely sentiment from the Double Sprinkles CD and a little stamped butterfly (Hobby Art) coloured with Promarkers.
Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog for some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team and hope to see you there.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Flutterby Wednesdays - Anything Goes (with butterfly, fairy or angel)
Anything Goes Challenge -  Anything Goes

Have a lovely day and a great weekend,
Fliss xx
