Number Collage Birthday Card

Here's another new Cuttlebug large embossing folder. This is the number collage. This card is a little funky, because I used two numbers that are next to each other on the embossing folder, and I emphasized them to represent my daughter's age.

I embossed turquoise and then a small red piece, and I overlapped them. I added red Stickles to the two numbers that I was emphasizing. I ticket punched the card front, added Stickles to the four corners, and added a ribbon around the card front. The "happy birthday" is from a Stampin' Up set, I added a small red marker border around it, and I mounted it on top of a large Prima Sprite. I wasn't too sure about this card when I finished with it, but the longer I looked at it, the more I liked it. What do you think?

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes for Emily yesterday! She enjoyed reading them all! We had a wonderful day yesterday full with shopping, lots of laughing, and a whole bunch of celebrating. This photo of Jessica and Emily was taken when we went out for Emily's birthday dinner at a local pizza parlor. Dinner was delicious!

Everything in this house is about Princess, or so she seems to think, so she had to pose for a photo with the birthday girl! She's such a silly dog, but we all love her!

Here Emily is showing off her birthday brownies after blowing out the candles. She loves brownies with frosting on them, so that's what Jessica and I made for her. Jessica frosted them! I added the "fancy" writing on the brownies. They were pretty delicious!

What a GREAT day yesterday for all of us! Emily had a fantastic 12th birthday! I'm way behind on blog hopping, but I'll be catching up with all of you soon! Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

I really love the card. I had passed on that particular embossing folder because I couldn't think of a way that I would use it. You, of course, came up with a bit of creative genius. Thanks for sharing!

What a neat card, and what a darling girl, this Emily. Happy Birthday,Emily, belated but sincere. Give little Princess a pat too because she surely would feel left out. I know Heidi would.
