Masculine 60th

I need a 60th birthday card for next weekend.  We've been invited to our neighbour's 60th birthday party and what a party it'll be!  I used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and the color challenge from Color Throwdown to create this card:


I kept the card reasonably plain as the recipient is a very down-to-earth guy - a true Kiwi bloke LOL.  I love Lucky Limeade and Basic Black together - so stunning - so I made that the foundation of my card with a few accents of blue and white.  The background is the Netting background stamp which I also stamped onto the banner.  The numerals were made from thick DSP backing board and DSP.  The circles are popped up on dimensionals.

Here are the challenge details:



Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Stamps:  Netting
Cardstock:  Lucky Limeade; Basic Black; Whisper White; Well-Worn DSP
Ink:  Lucky Limeade
Accessories:  Typeset Alphabet Bigz; Big Shot; Neutrals Brads; Circle Nesties

Cheers
Karren
