Happy Day Numbers Card

Hello all!

When I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World blog, I knew I just had to play along.  Here is the inspiration photo.....
Don't you just love this quilt with the numbers in all sorts of fun, vibrant colours ?

It took a couple of hours for an idea to hit me but this is what I cam e up with....

I used my Cricut to cut out numbers from a variety of cardstock colours in 1 inch and 1.5 inch sizes.  Once they were adhered to a white cardstock, I ran it through my Cuttlebug using an embossing folder with a fairly small pattern.   i love how it makes the card look quilted, just like the Trigger inspiration photo!  It also makes the numbers look like they are embedded right into the background.  I carried on the numbers theme with a large foam 5, figuring this would make a sweet kids birthday card.

Thank you for popping by!
