Cardz 4 Guyz - Numbered Birthday

It's another Tuesday in August - and I'm back for my 2nd week as Guest Designer for the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge.  This week we are to make a masculine Numbered Birthday Card.
I made mine for DH Kent - this is how old he will be on his next birthday in January 2016 -  I hope I remember where I hide this so I can give it to him then!!   I just love the bold look of the oversized numbers - they are dies from Papertrey Ink.  The background is stamped with Spooky Tree from Waltzingmouse. The two sentiment stamps are from Inkadinkado Bird Assortment.
I used my long forgotten Owl punch from Stampin Up for the cute little critter and the Small Gothic Window die from Poppy Stamps. I sponged Ranger Distress Broken China ink over the edges of the piece inside the window frame.  The heart and eyes on the owl are popped up on foam dots.
I die cut the Alterations Small Easel out of kraft card stock and adhered it onto the back of my card  panel so it can be displayed nicely on a shelf or windowsill!

I hope you'll join us this week - and link up your Numbered Birthday masculine creation!  Who do you know that is having a special numbered birthday??  You'll find all the details and more inspiration from the Design Team over at the Cardz 4 Guyz blog!

I love how the cute little owl sits in that gorgeous gothic window. I wish someone had sent me a birthday card with big numbers on like that, I always forget how old I am and it would be a great reminder! Love this card, hope you don't forget when you put it either! Hugs, Anne xx
