Tilda & Co challenge #2 - numbers


This weeks challenge on the Tilda & Co challenge blog was to use numbers as well as Magnolia stamps. We have an 11th birthday coming up in the family in April, so I'm feeling well organised with this one! I wanted to get some texture on this card, so I layered some corrugated brown card behind the stamped image. The frayed netting is sewn on with fine string, which I've used to attach the tag. The stamp is by Magnolia and I used chipboard numbers, inked and chalked.

I'm loving all these challenges, they really get me going and actually making cards. It's also nice to browse round the different design teams work too, not to mention all the challenge participants blogs. I can spend hours ooh'ing and aaah'ing over all the lovely cards!

I'm off for a hunt round for more challenges to take part in!
