Challenge #147 “Taxman” use Numbers!!

If you are looking for my Clear it Out Tuesday post scroll down or click HERE.

Guess we all know the number crunching for the taxman although Canada has a couple more weeks (which is good for me) Since I was asked to make a Sapphire Anniversary Card (45 years) I thought perfect for the challenge, there is no stamping and no colouring (gasp) unreal for me as I love to colour. I love the way it turned out and plan on making a “box envie” for it. This is what I made for Shopping Our Stash challenge this week.
I used some recollections gemstone paper for the blue and shimmer white from Stampin’up both are a couple of years old, the flowers are also from my stash, I take them apart and put them back together, there are tiny pearls in the centers. Ribbon and flowers are from Len’s Mills store. I cut the 45 with my Cuttlebug alpha dies and attached them to thin strips of clear acrylic.
Close up of the numbers done with stardream cardstock scraps.
The sentiments are both computer generated.
Thanks for looking today and I hope you will dig into your stash and create a project for the Taxman/numbers challenge at Shopping our Stash.
