Colourful 40th Birthday

Most of the cards I make for other people are because the person wants a personalised card. Today's is for the son of a work colleague to give to his uncle. The uncle is French, hence the 'ton ton' which is an affectionate French phrase for 'uncle'.

The '40' is hand cut from some lovely glittery papers I found at The Range. I printed '40' on the reverse of the papers so I had a template to cut around. The background is faux embossing using lots of die-cut numbers to make rows of 40s.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Southern Girls Challenge - anything goes
Crafting With An Attitude #18 - anything goes
