Milestone birthday - Sweet Stampin' DT and DT call!

Good morning everyone!

It's time for another challenge over at Sweet Stampin', and this week the theme is Milestone Birthdays.

But before I share my card with you, I thought I'd give you a heads-up that Sweet Stampin' are looking for new Sweeties to come join us. It's a really fun team and there's a lot of artistic freedom (as long as you use rubber or digi stamps!), so why not apply? We'd love to see you there! Full details are in this post.

Anyways, on to my card. I decided to break in one of my brand new Woodware stamps, and paper pieced the numbers, then used the same papers for the background.

I wanted to make something relatively masculine, but not blue, so I went with greens instead, using Basic Grey papers. The mat is very dark green card, and I added some green starry washi tape and dark green buttons. The "birthday wishes" came with the "18" stamp, and finally I did some faux stitching to finish it off.

And there we have it. Simple, yet fun, and I think it would work for a young man...

Your turn! Take a peek at my fellow Sweeties' work and leave then some love, and then we would love for you to come play!

In the meantime, have a fantabulous weekend!

Great CAS lad card Sammy. Love the paper piecing, they seem to lend themselves to that technique. I treated myself to the "cake" one from this range so watch out for it (when I eventually get around to using it!!) Hope things are moving along with the teeth xx

Hi Sammy! You've touched this laddies heart. I'm lovin' the green. The number would be a bit low though. Great job.
