60th Birthday Card

I love making easel cards - they look so different to anything shop bought and are so easy to make. Today's card is a 60th birthday card for an auntie made in this style.

Usually easel card are quite fussy and flowery but I've kept this clean and simple. The numbers are printed from Wordart then hand cut and I've kept embellishments to a minimum. It actually looks much better in 'real life' - the linen card I've used is so white!

I've entered this card into the following challenges:
