Whoos 6?

Happy World Card Making Day!  How great is it that we can have a day to celebrate this wonderful craft! 

I'll have two posts for you today, one later with the Flourishes WCMD Challenge on SCS and this first one, a card I had to make this morning for our 6 year old son's friend's Birthday Party.  Whew that's a mouthful.  It needed to be a quick card.  It's loosely based on Beate's 100th Weekend Sketch, but the 6 is really much larger than what she designed as the sketch.  It's a 4.25 x 4.25 inch card. 

Fun hey?  So not my style, but it's always good to stretch.  I took out my chipboard that I so rarely use, and found this massive number!  (LOL), I inked it with Night of Navy Craft and clear embossed it, then added polka-dots to match the owl from Animal Stories with my white gel pen. 

What is hard to see is that I used the Textures plate in the "bark" style on the white and then stamped the letters around the 6.  Super simple but kinda fun! 

Back here about 5 pm MTN time for the Flourishes Challenge, it's a GREAT one!
