40th Birthday Card

Here's a little 40th birthday card I made for a friend using lots of different tools!  I began with an A2 size card, and I trimmed the card base and my white layer with a Fiskars punch.  I then printed my number background paper by using the Black & White Imagine cartridge and chartreuse cardstock.  The banner and topnote shapes were made with Papertrey Ink dies.  I used the Papertrey Ink Big Birthday Wishes stamp set for my sentiment.  They sell coordinating number dies, but I discovered that if you cut the numbers from the Cricut Nursery Rhymes cartridge at 1 3/4", it's a great match.

Awesome Card. Great Tip on the number. That's why I didn't bother buying the PTI Die on that one.
