21st Birthday Card

G'morning's gone a bit chilly here...very windy last night and very difficult to get a piccy of this card without it being blown all around the garden lol! I've straightened out the slight crease on the bottom right hand corner of the card...glad I spotted that before it went in the envie!

I made this card for a neighbour of ours...I didn't want anything cutesie on it so thought I'd blow the dust of my Cricut Expression and cut some numbers...quite pleased with the way it turned and hopefully suitable for a 21 year old lad!

I'm gonna enter my card into the following challenges...

Numbers : Cut on my Cricut Expression

Hi Donna. I love this card - it's so clever as there is no image but you still know it's for a boy.

I hope you can pop over to my blog if you have time as I have left a well deserved award there for you.

This is gorgeous. The polka dots really bring the numbers through with the stripes! Great patterns - loving the gingham, Donna. The mesh is the best. Great texture! You always make great cards, my friend. I love the simplistic look and how the mesh makes it a super extra touch. Your neighbor will be stoked. Have a lovely weekend dear! :-)
