MFT Birthday Project...

This month we have a new challenge for the MFT Birthday Project...

Sometimes using a numerical representation of the birthday boy or girl’s age is to share in their excitement (four-year-olds LOVE being four!) and sometimes, it’s maybe to rub it in a bit…in a loving way, of course. This month, we're challenging you to come up with interesting ways to feature numbers in your designs — whether recognizing the milestone of a newly-christened teenager, the celebration of hitting the half-century mark, or anything in between (or beyond!) we want to see numbers in play.

I needed a birthday card so this challenge came in perfect time...


To create this card, I did a little stenciling in the background with the Snow Flurry Stencil and the went over the area again with the gray ink so I have a little ink blended spot on the card base.  I stacked up 4 of the Happy Birthday Circle Frame and attached that to the card base.  I used the Well Connected Numbers stamp set for the 8 and the Mini Well Connected Alphabet for the "th".  I stamped those in black ink in the center of the frame.  Last, I grabbed one of of the adorable mice from It's a Mice Time to Celebrate and added a little color.  I popped him up on the card front with foam tape.  


I can't wait to see how the rest of the design team creates with numbers today.  You can see lots more of this birthday inspiration over on the MFT Challenge Blog today!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to play along!
