The Number 90

 Welcome to the latest Inkspirational challenge  #285 -  it's a Word Prompt.

I made a 90th birthday card for a very dear church friend (who doesn't act or look 90!). We were on the  Altar Guild together for many years and she still attends church most Sundays.

I die cut, inked and sponged the edges on the mushrooms, acorns and tree rings and layered them over the patterned paper with foam dots.  I stamped the 90 on one of the acorns.

We are good enough friends that she will get a chuckle from the sentiment I put inside her card on the left!

So please show us how you use NUMBERS on your card design!  You'll find more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team over at Inkspirational!

You have until March 24th to get your Numbers card linked up!

I'm also linking my card to:

Stripes background and dots on the mushrooms!

What a clever way to show the number. This is a great card. I bet Doris loved it. A 90th birthday should definitely have a very special celebration xx

What a wonderful way to wish your friend a happy birthday, Julia! The inside sentiment is a hoot and one I need to remember for my brother!

I'm smitten with your assortment and arrangement of wood, mushrooms and acorns; eye-catching, especially with the 90 nestled on to one of the acorns. I know Doris loved your card, as do I. The left inside sentiment: too funny!
