60th Birthday Card

I really first got into cardmaking as 2 of my friends did it so was "encouraged" to join in. Now one of said friends (who this card is for) bribes me to make cards for her by paying me in cake. Hard to refuse so when she requested a 60th card for a friend of hers, I could hardly say no as she makes a victoria sponge to die for lol!

This cute image is my new Lili of the Valley stamp which I heat embossed as the ridge helps me not to go over the lines with my Promarkers ;c). I've also used a Personal Impressions mixed sentiments stamp and the mega scallop circles that I bought on Sunday.

The papers are K&C Classic Mckenna, the numbers are Sizzix Alphabubbles and the embossing is a Cuttlebug folder which is part of the Love Language Set

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch
Whoopsi Daisy - vibrant colours
Creative Craft Challenges - stamp it up
Magical Crafts - flower power
The Crafty Pad - embossing
