Number of Years for PPA293 and PP288

One of my ProCraftinators team members has a birthday today!  When I got up this morning, I went to work specially on a card for her.  I was able to get most of the way finished before I had to dash off to Philly for an appointment today; which was followed by lunch at IKEA with my daughter.  I was told I could take her back there for lunch any day.  Anyway… while I’m waiting for dinner to finish cooking I’m sneaking in a little time to finish the card and this post.

I used Number of Years and combined it with PPA293 and PP288

Number of Years 50th Birthday card for PPA293 and PP288 from

It’s been a couple of weeks since I played along with a challenge.

I loved the color combo of So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron.  It felt like a pretty, feminine combination to use for this 50th birthday card.

“50”, I stamped first in So Saffron and then cut the numbers with the Large Numbers Framelits.  I can’t tell you how much I love this set of numbers!!  The five and zero are attached to the card with dimensionals.  They represent the shape in the sketch.

I split the sentiment on two banners. (one more than the sketch called for).  Since the stamps are photopolymer, I was able to gently shape the “happy” and “birthday”.  The banners were created by cutting a circle frame using the fifth and seventh smallest Circles Collection framelits.

On the opposite side of the card

is the tri color panel.  Using the stem and flower images from Number of Years, I inked in Versamark and stamped to create a watermark effect.  Then, I went over the flowers with clear Wink of Stella to give a little subtle shimmer.

The lovely iridescent sequins are from the  February, 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  They were perfect! for this card.  Those sequins and other exclusive embellishments are one of the reasons I love getting Paper Pumpkin.

 And that’s it for my Number of Years 50th Birthday card.
