The latest challenge theme at Shopping our Stash (where a bunch of my Snarky Sisters are on the DT) is Tax Man: use numbers on your project. Since I needed a birthday card, this seemed a perfect opportunity to join in.
Lots of numbers here, on both the patterned paper and the clock stamp that I embossed in gold before sponging the background with distress inks. I didn't have quite the sentiment I wanted in stamp form, so turned to the computer to make my own. And it all seems very pleasant until you get to the inside sentiment...
I was nice enough not to specify the actual number. ;) To limit the number of layers on the inside, I edged the patterned paper with marker instead of matting it with black, as I did on the front.
Did you notice how I mentioned The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers back at the beginning of this post? The current challenge, Q is for Queen, ends tomorrow at midnight -- why not join us? All you need is a project that has a crown or bling. Our next challenge starts bright and early on Saturday!
