80th Birthday

It's time for another challenge for Team A at MAWTT.  Our host is  Carole and she asked us to make a card using age as the focal point. Fortunately for me, since I am still not up to crafting since I lost my sister, I have a few cards made before she became ill.  This one fits the brief perfectly.

My Card

5" x 7" base card made from black adorable scorable cardstock
Spellbinders Etched Alphabet dies
Sue Wilson -Stitched Flags
Silver mirri card
Silver Rub on greeting

I used a second piece of the black card to die cut the numbers and then layered it onto the base card with foam tape. It was very difficult to photograph and not easy to see  but in real life it is quite effective. In the picture it all looks very flat.  A few gems finished it off.

Please pop across to the blog and see what my teamies have made for this challenge.
