Sorry to bombard you with posts today, but I'm playing along with MFT's World Card-making Day challenges and the deadline is before I get home from work tomorrow, because we're several hours ahead of the US.  So it's now or never!

This challenge is to feature numbers on your card.  My son's 20th birthday is coming up in a few months so I thought this was a good time to make him a card.

I used the Pop Up Numbers and cut the "20" several times across a panel of soft grey cardstock.  I then added foam tape on the back and adhered it to some Limelight cardstock.  I finished with a white-embossed sentiment cut with the Slanted Sentiment Strips die.  Pretty easy!

I'm linking this up to Seize The Birthday who are looking for text/script background.  Not sure if numbers count, but if not, I'll join in with the Linky Party.

Products used:

Stamps:  Adorable Elephants (MFT)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Soft Stone, Black, Limelight (MFT)
Dies:  Pop Up Numbers, Slanted Sentiment Strips

This is a fabulous masculine birthday card! With fun element like pop up numbers and fresh color it is perfect for a young gentleman! I think the numbers count as text background :)! Thank you so much for joining us at Seize the Birthday, Karren!
