Celebrating the Big 5-0!

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing the birthday card I created for My Man. In keeping with 'using what I already own', I pulled out some oldies but goodies and this is what I made.

I went back to basics on this one, using no patterned paper, just card stock and ink. I used GinaK Designs Pure Luxury card stock; Black Onyx for the base and the 120lb heavy white card stock. Let me just say, if you've never tried GinaK's card stock, you need to. It is FAB-U-LOUS!!  And talk about a blast to the past, I die-cut the 5 and 0, using my Sizzix Sizzlits alpha called Round-a-Bout. I haven't used those alphas in years! I die-cut a small circle using a Nestabilities circle die, sponged on a bit of cantaloupe ink and popped the numbers up on pop dots. The ribbon is also from GinaK Designs.

Thank you for dropping in today. Enjoy your Wednesday!
