Play Date Cafe combined with Make it Mondays and CAS-ual Fridays



Look at those colors - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those! 





Oh, this is just totally up my alley! So this is what I did: I needed a birthday card. I love those colors - did I mention that before? And at Make it Monday the theme is embossed alphabet - I used a number - I guess you can always stretch those challenges a bit.... And how convenient is that - CAS-ual Fridays theme is Birthday Bash. I usually do not combine three challenges, but what the heck, why not... but those Play Date cafe  colors may go into an second project.....


I die cut the number and clear embossed it with a 100 Proof Press stamp - you can see this better in the close-up photo.




I am also submitting this card to the Divas that Die Cut Paper challenge - the theme is Washi or Birthday card. Obviously its birthday only, no Washi, but I used embossing and a die cut!
and the last challenge I am participating in with this card is KIS - the theme is numbers.


Materials: Papertrey Zig Zag dies, Papertrey Numbers embossing plate, Papertrey By the Numbers die, 100 Proof Press, Martha Stewart punch,sentiment Inkadinkadoo, Perfect Pearls

Oh that clear embossing on your 5 really makes it special. And those colors work out perfectly for a birthday card. So glad you joined the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

I was thinking "ahhh" as I saw this card. So cute and perfect for the age - cheery and bright. But here's something else. I, myself, would love to receive this card and I'm "slightly" older than 5.

So glad you also entered the Die Cut Divas' challenge for birthday or Washi tape.
