Happy 50th!

We went to a surprise 50th birthday party for a friend of ours, and this is the card I came up with. I have been in a totally linear mode lately when it comes to card-making. I don't have any chipboard numbers, so I printed out some numbers on the computer, cut them out, traced them onto sheets of chipboard, and attempted to cut them out with a craft knife. Apparently, it is very true that you need a good sharp knife for these kinds of things! I managed to not mangle the numbers terribly thanks to my sanding blocks! I covered them with chocolate craft ink and embossed several layers of glassy glaze on them. I'm really loving the Women of Life set from Papertrey, it's really cool.

Supplies:
stamps - Celebrate Everything, Wanted, Women of Life (PTI)
paper - chocolate, ww, river rock, river rock dsp
ink - chocolate, olive craft
acc - artichoke gg, silver HPH, homemade chipboard numbers, glassy glaze ep

I finally got a watermark! No, actually I've had the watermark, I finally found a free download that lets me use it (thanks, Tammy)!

Wow, your chipboard numbers look fab! Sounds like it was a lot of work- but so worth the end result.
