hooray it's your 50+50+18 day

We've got a combo birthday party coming up (maybe you remember back in 2014 our family's 161 party?). This time it's for 50 + 50 + 18! ETA: Our married friends are both turning 50 and their daughter, 18,  and they are having one big party to celebrate! I took the opportunity to play with the

MFT Sketch and
 MFT Color challenge.

I'm heading to Time Out #55 where it's about Celebrations with the option of die cutting. Yep. And Seven Hills Crafts cuz of my colors. And I'm sharing at Seize the Birthday where it's Anything Goes too.


I knew the MFT High Rise Number dies were going to play a big role on my card due to the ages. So So happy to own these dies - I've gotten such mileage out of them!


Inked some Neenah CS with two tones each of blue, green and yellow inks (DI, Adirondack and SSS dye inks). Splattered and Perfect Pearled it before die cutting circles from it. Then I die cut the numbers from the circles and from white fun foam.

Took a creme cardbase, adhered a strip of B/W Pink Paislee PP and heat embossed the sentiment from MFT Birthday Greetings. Adhered the circles and numbers and a variety of gold and silver sequins (Pretty Pink Posh and Winnie and Walter) to get that "party on a card" feel ;)


Hope you're having a fabulous weekend. Thanks for looking.
