Blue flowers ...

... another 60th birthday card ... this time the numbers are hidden, slightly more subtle than my earlier card!

The image was heat embossed with silver embossing powder before water colouring with distress inks.  I die cut the numbers out of the panel and three more times from a scrap of card and then adhered them together and placed them back into the panel.  Added the panel to the card base and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.

I used:
STAMPlorations - Blossom Sprays #1 Dee's Artsy Impressions
Lawn Cuts - Stitched Rectangle nesting dies
Dienamics - High Rise Number dies
Distress inks - Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch
Distress Oxides - Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean
WOW Silver Embossing Powder

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #368

Addicted to Stamps and More #285
