Updated: I am hugely excited at being selected as one of the winners at Cardz4Guyz for this challenge!
I absolutely love threes in cards, so when I saw this sketch from CAS(E) this sketch!, I thought, ‘triple the fun!’.
I then stumbled upon Cardz for Guyz, where the cue word was ‘Numbers’, so am entering this card in their challenge too.
This is what I came up with:
I first saw this stamp-set used by Amy Tsuruta here, and it totally cracked me up! While this is a ‘busier’ style of card for me, I just love they way the frenetic numbers contrast with the thin, wide type-set. I used a Stampin’ Marker to individually colour the letter of ‘WTF’ so that I could space and cut them into individual blocks.
I wanted to draw attention to the question mark, because, let’s face it, turning 40 is a bit of a head-scratching moment (or so I’ve been told..!!) Poor thing is just dangling there, wondering where the last 39 years went…
Thanks for stopping by!
