Happy 50th!

Another post for the online Pattern Play card class.  I am so happy to finally be using up some of my patterned paper!

A good friend of mine's husband will be turning 50 next month and she asked for friends to send cards so that he'll have 50 of them to open on his birthday.  Of course, I couldn't buy one ... handmade it is!

During the last PTI release, Jess Witty made this card and I knew in an instant that I would CASE that card for this occasion!

I used my silhouette to cut out the numbers, both from my card base and from my bold patterned paper.  Since it's his 50th birthday, I chose a mostly black patterned paper.

I kept my card a bit simplier than Jess's by skipping the clear cardstock layer and inking the paper edges instead of stitching.  I really like the results regardless of the changes.  Hopefully my friend and her husband will too.  :)

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
