20th Birthday

A lady at work asked me to make a bright card for her grandson's 20th birthday - she couldn't find anything suitable in the shops! Here's my effort...

I used a scrap of star patterned paper from my large scraps box to die cut a circle and added a die-cut border and numbers in coordinating colours. For the background I used zigzag washi tape and added a few enamel dots. The wording was created in Publisher using Formal 365 font.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
