65th Birthday Card

150mm sq

This is for our friend and neighbour across the road.
It doesn't fit any challenges that I know of.
I have used bits and bobs of paper left over from other projects but they all co-ordinated so I'm happy about that.
I did the numbers in Word and hand cut them and matted them on to some silver mirri card.

My blog candy winners parcel arrived from Kym on Saturday. There is such lot of lovely goodies.
Thank you Kym :-).
Amongst them is a set of Penny Black stamps and I have used the musical notes embossed in gold on the number 6. This is quite appropriate because Alan likes music.
The first BP is embossed with both the CB words folder and swiss dots and the edges inked with ColorBox Creamy Brown which was also in my parcel.

Close up, though the colours are off!!!

Thank you for stopping by and any comment you would like to leave will be really appreciated. Hope to see you again soon

Irene, what a lovely card and such a good use of odds and ends of papers. Well, you didn't let those stamp lurk did you. I'm glad they have found a lovely new home. Best wishes, Kym xxx

Absolutely LOVE it Irene (no surprise there then lol!)
My favourite 'earthy' colour palette and those numbers look brilliant, you are clever, I wouldn't have a clue about doing something like this from word!

Terrific card Irene. The papetrs may be odds & ends but they work brilliantly together. I love the music paper especially.
