I'm late!




Sorry to be so late with my Crafty Creations design team offering - I have to own up, I knew we were having a break but I thought it was this week - it's next week doh! Never mind - it's not as late as the card itself is - my colleague forgot her cousin's 50th birthday - she's actually 51 now!

This week our challenge is Anything but a square so I printed my numerals onto patterned paper, cut them out and then shaped the card around the figures. I didn't want the card to be too flimsy so I left the bottom edge squared off and then added all the decorative details. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the sentiment was printed off the computer. The papers used are Cafe Mediterranean from DCWV. I decorated the inside too since it was a special card - I hope it helps to ease my colleague's conscience!

Entering the following challenges:
Bearly Mine - Flowers, flowers, flowers
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
Paper Take Weekly - Anything goes (option, use a shaped card)
Ribbon Carousel Challenge must include ribbon - Anything goes
Craft Your Passion - Flowers
Crafty Boots - Anything goes
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge - Anything goes
Lia Stampz - Birthday
Make it Monday - Always anything goes
Woodware USA - Anything goes
Truly Scrumptious - Decorate the inside
