14th Birthday - Spots and Stripes

I was asked to make a simple card for a friend to give her son on his 14th birthday - 'nothing fussy - just a big number - his favourite colour is red'...

I do like an easy task...

I created the big numbers in Microsoft Publisher, printed them back to front on the back of the striped patterned paper then carefully cut out. They were mounted on red paper then carefully cut out again to give a border. I mounted the numbers using foam pads on to a spotty patterned paper fro the same pad. The greeting was also created in Publisher.

Very simple but as the base card is 8 x 8 inches it will really stand out.

I'm entering this card into the 'anything goes' challenges at:
