A 70th Birthday, using up some stash!

I've had a lovely couple of days crafting away as I was lucky enough to get 3 days off this week! Here is another card for you that I've made for a customer at work's 70th birthday, and it has really inspired me to use up some stash I found whilst having a clearout!

This was a sheet of numbers that I bought at my first ever GNPE about 3 years ago and never used! It happens alot, me buying stuff and not using it! Anyway, I had it in the charity giveaway bag, then remembered I needed the 70th card so I fished it our again thinking that I would only make the one card. Well I was so pleased with the result that, up to now, I've also made an 80th and I'm halfway through a 21st, plus I have 30 and 40 in the pipeline, all different colours! I shall post them as I make them. 
The nestie shape is Stampin' Up! Labels Collection, and the ribbon is some from some packaging I think. I finished with Liquid Pearls.


I'm now off to post a Stampin' Up! card on my other blog...why not pop over for a peek? 
See you over there!
