I have been missing in action for a couple of weeks - just busy with a lot of different things.  I am in awe of you gals who can keep up with a myriad of challenges, groups, design teams, making comments on blogs, etc., and actually making lots of cards and creating blog posts, too!

Anyway, here is a card I made for my son-in-law's 50th birthday which is coming up soon. 

 I used one of the sketches Shari provided on the Hero Arts blog and some strips of paper from the Basic Grey Hello Luscious pad.   And, for the background, I actually dared to cut the word "Celebrate" from a Hero Arts clear phrase to use alone, which was the first time I attempted that!  The number stamps are from an old Hero Arts set that I have had for ages.

I didn't want this card to become too fussy, so I just popped the circles up from the background layer, and then popped that layer up from the folded kraft card.  A bit of Stickles platinum glitter was added around the circle for a bit of bling. 

Thank you for visiting!

Stamps and supplies used:

Hero Arts CL497 Find Joy
Basic Grey Hello Luscious 6 x 6 pad
Ranger Stickles platinum glitter
