AAA Birthday - #7 Include A Number

A new challenge has started at AAA Birthday and the theme is really useful for me as it's Include A Number.

My little granddaughter has her first birthday in November and if I'm honest that's why I chose this theme. time to indulge myself with a sea of pink and the number One.

This card is so far away from my usual CAS style that I surprised myself! Way back when I first started card making this was the sort of card I would always make and it seems it's a bit like riding a bicycle you never forget how. Although I did stop short of adding all the paper flower clusters I used to use - I did try them out but I'm guessing I've been CAS too long now and that was just a step too far!

I used that naughty Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the ONE in sparkly non-shed glitter card from Papermilldirect. And guess what? It cut through this card like a dream. Then I added the cutest ever digi stamp from LOTV and some pretty paper from Polka Doodles.

Stamps: LOTV digi, Teddy with Balloon
Card: Papermill Direct, non-shed glitter; Polkadoodles, Butterfly Daisy
Dies: Silhouette Cameo, One; Lawn Fawn, large stitched square stackables
Pens: Copic, R14, R20, R21, R22, R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG23, E41, E42, E43
