Fabulous 50

Tonight's card was a request from a work colleague - a 50th birthday card for her 'Mam' as we say here in the North East...

The numbers are die-cut - a pink layer slightly displaced on a black layer. To add some shine I covered the numbers in glossy accents then added a flat-backed pearl. The background was made in Publisher - I repeated the greeting with a small heart between each repeat. This is a great way to make a newspaper effect backing paper.

The main greeting is done in the same font but larger and I've added a couple of stars and pearls.

Very quick and simple to make!

I've entered this card into the challenges at:
