Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Milestone Birthdays

This week at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, we're celebrating:

'Milestone Birthdays'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:


Prize - 3 digis of the winner's choice from the Stamping Boutique!

I used my Hero Arts ''Garden Bouquet' stamp for some resist embossing...stamping it using Versamark, then heat embossing it in white. Then I blended 'Milled Lavender', 'Dusty Concord' and 'Chipped Saphire' Distress Inks over the top. I used my Cuttlebug 'Kassies Brocade' folder for the embossing, my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the border, and cut the numbers using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.

PS - I have candy on offer at the moment...click here to find out more.
