40 and fabulous

I love making cards for challenges, but just recently, probably along with the rest of the world during this busy season, I haven't had much time. However, one of my New Year's resolutions is to try and fit in just a smidgen of time every now and then to indulge myself. Soooo, while needing to make a 40th birthday card, I've managed to combine a couple of challenges with a CASE of Maile Belles I've been meaning to try and came up with this card.

Pin It
Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink big birthday wishes, modern wood mats; Inks - Versafine onyx black, Versacolor seashell; Card - Papertrey Ink soft stone; Dies - Papertrey Ink mat stack 5, double ended banners; Embossing Folder - Papertrey Ink; Stampin' Up rhinestones

Last year I loved the sketches by Lucy Abrams and despite having a new born baby (many congrats on Lily's arrival!) Lucy has found time to put together a new set of sketches this year. This card is for sketch 1.


The second challenge I used was another favourite of mine - Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger. Here's the inspiration photo.


I think the number theme was obviously an inspiration but I also thought the quilting around the numbers reminded me of the wood grain in Papertrey Ink's modern wood mats. Here's a closer look.


Phew, that's me for today. Have a great weekend!

Simply beautiful! Did you stamp your "fabulous" twice? What a nice solution to letters that are too long for the esthetic width of the banner you want to print them on. Thanks for that tip.
