Cuttlebug Challenge – be Inspired #27 - Numbers

Well, it’s the start of a new week and just as I was hoping to get back to some serious crafting, I hear that my insurance company has given the go-a head for the work to be done after the flood and the decorator is starting on Thursday.
This means that I have to clear the room of all the furniture ready for them and store it in my bedroom and in here, which won’t leave my any room to work.

Added to that I have the guy coming to measure up for the bespoke fire surround on Tuesday, I have to see the nurse to have the dressing removed from my knee on Wednesday, I have the weekly shop with dad (as well as the start of the decorating) on Thursday and I have to take my brother to the hospital for the pre assessment of his cataract operation on Friday, so I have quite a full week.

Taking all the above into consideration this 50th birthday card that I made for last Wednesdays Cuttlebug Challenge may well be the only card I get to show you this week.

The number was cut on my Robo and I’ve added some embossing, a little bit of doodling and some faux stitching.

Card Blank – Craft Creations
Papers– Basic Grey, Granola
Ink – Ranger Distress Ink (Faded Jeans)
Embossing Folder – Cuttlebug (Spots and Dots)
Dies – Sizzix (12in. Hunky Dory Alphabet), Spellbinder Nestabilities (Large Standard Circle)
Large Brads – Basic Grey (Boxer)

This is great! I love this paper. I love that this paper can really be used as a masculine paper as well. I also used it for a sympathy card.
I love all the texture and layers you have in your card!
