Happy 7th Birthday

A birthday card for two challenges at ColourQ and CAS-ual Fridays.
I am also entering this at A Passion for Papertrey ~ "take your pick."
It's the third birthday party my son is going to this month,
good thing I am making the cards instead of buying them ;) ~ just kidding!
For what I paid for the four die sets I used, I could bought a lot of cards!
Of course, I didn't buy the dies just for this card ~ good thing;).


Supplies ~
Stamps: PTI Big Birthday Wishes
Paper: PTI White, SU Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit,  Certainly Celery & Midnight Muse
Ink: SU Midnight Muse
Dies:   PTI By the Numbers & Block Alphabet Numbers, SU Typeset Alphabet Bigz & Timeless 

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Hi Jean! Your card is so fun and bright. Love the way you used the numbers, I'm always looking for good ways to make cards with the umbers....... Love your idea. Thanks for the comments and the reminder of the square card.

  2. You did an awesome job of spreading the challenge colors among the sevens, and sizing them all! It's clean and precise and perfect!!

  3. Such a fun birthday card for a 7 year old Jean. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the colourQ!

  4. Great idea- and you could alter it to suit any age! Love it!

  5. What a great card. Love how you used the 7 for the background. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.

  6. Cute 7th birthday card, Jean, love the use of the die cuts! Thanks for joining in the fun this week at the colourQ.

  7. Jean, this card is terffic! It really stands out in the colourQ line up!!!

  8. Love your square card! And the colors are SUPER!

  9. Super cool card, Jean! And your comment made me laugh out loud. How many times are we crafters told that we must be saving a lot of money by making our own cards, hehehe. If they only knew...
    Thanks so much for playing with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays!

  10. Congratulations on your shout out. I love this card design. Just super.

  11. Super cute! And 7 is my favorite number! lol

  12. Jean , congrats on your win at colourQ.

  13. What a cool and wonderful birthday card!! LOVE the design!! You'll just have to change up the card to "8's" next year get more use from your dies:)!! Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us this week at CAS-ual Fridays:)!!

  14. This is a super fun birthday card design! I struggle with kid birthday cards, and this one is perfect! I will definitely be adding this to my card ideas folder. Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays! We're so glad you did!

  15. Wow! What fun!!! The colors are wonderful and that's the cutest idea for using the numbers! LOVE!!! And I think I'll CASE it with a bunch of different numbers from my Cricut for my Operation Write Home cards. By switching out the colors, it could work just as well for boys as girls.

    LOL about making your own cards. I remember all too well those famous last words when I told my husband that cards had gotten so expensive, I was going to save money by making my own.

    Well, it seemed like a great budget idea at the time!
