40th Birthday Card for #GDP102

This week at the Global Design Project we have a sketch challenge and I have made a 40th Birthday Card using the Number of Years stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

Letters for You from Stampin Up

It was my beautiful cousin’s 40th birthday and I wanted to make a special card for her.  The number of years stamp set is a brilliant set for any milestone birthdays you are celebrating.

The stamp set has matching dies which makes cutting out the numbers a breeze!

I added a little string of linen thread around the base of the back part of the card and made the front a little shorter.

I also added a washi tape edging to the white card front and some enamel dots.

The greeting on the front is just perfect for my cousin Nichola.  She is just a blessing to our family.  She makes us all smile and I was delighted to be able to celebrate her birthday with her and my family.  She even had the biggest helium balloon I have have seen with her name on it!

Nichola's 40th Birthday

Love her!

Here is the inside of the card….
