JAI #301 Just add numbers

Hello there,
this week at Just Add Ink Nikki has challenged us to Just Add Numbers. As it turned out that was an easy challenge for me to work with as I still had a birthday card to make for my sweet Mr 7. Who has been excited all year about the idea of becoming Mr 8 (ok maybe he was more excited about the birthday party bit ;) Here's what I came up with.

Just to cover my bases on the number front - I added some more to the inside.

My little guy is pretty super so it was an easy decision to colour up a super boy for him. Even easier was the background (all patterned paper!) To give the frame some dimension I cut three layers and adhered them together with glue, then laid it over the patterned paper background.

There are all sorts of occasions you can add numbers. Check out the rest of the JAI DT for some great ideas. Hope you can join us.
