Cuttlebag Challenge #27

This weeks "Be Inspired Challenge" is Numbers...appropriate for Tax Day! I made a card for a friend who will be turning the BIG 40! I used some sticker numbers that are part of a package bought at a yard sale...they are over 40 and made at a company called Dennison which was in a town near where I grew up. I have this huge stash of numbers and letters as well as some Christmas stickers from waaay back. It instantly brought back memories as I licked them. Ewww! How lucky we are to have self-adhesive stickers and stamps!


  1. Great card, love that embossing folder!

  2. This is nice. I like the plain embossing and the color splashed in on the circle. Thanks for playing the Cuttlebug Challenge.

  3. Wonderful card! So beautiful and elegant!

  4. Oh how funny! I have some of these type of "stickers" in my stash as well. Mine are mostly gold medallions and flowers and even some gold lace trim! Love the stuff! And what a great card to celebrate your friend's 40th!
