Hello!  Here’s a reasonably quick card I made this morning combining a few challenges.  The Retro Rubber challenge has a numbers theme, so that gave me the perfect reason to use this designer paper that I’ve had for a while.  I’ve had the stamp set with this sentiment for about 18 months now.  I like reading this sentiment with emphasis on the word “how”, as in, “You’re HOW old?” said with a lot of snarky disbelief – so that ties in with the Shopping Our Stash and Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenges.  The layout for this card is from Freshly Made Sketches.  It’s hard to see in the photo, but the yellow panel behind the sentiment is dry embossed for a little bit of texture and visual interest.



(I don’t know why the background on the FMS graphic turned black.  Their graphics have been doing for me that the last few weeks.  They used to be white.  Call me confuzzled.)

Thanks for stopping by today!  All comments are read and appreciated – well, the spam ones aren’t so appreciated, but I actually do read them too.
