"0's" as Far as the Eye Can See!!

Morning all.

Recently I had a considerable run of "ZERO" birthdays. One was a girl on my netball team and the other 2 were crafting friends....one of whom I know definitely reads my blog from time to time!!

A kind of different source of inspiration for these cards. I found this idea here in Lana Harvey's blog. Whilst the outside of the card is stunning, it was actually the inside that appealed to me for an idea. With that in mind, I came up with these.......

What do you think? They are a little different, and the numbers sparkle. Every gal likes sparkle....don't they??? I stamped the "bud" image from Simply Soft in a lighter colour than the main and then stamped the "sticks" in the main colour or similar. If I did not have a suitable ink, I stamped off the main colour and then used it.

I challenged myself a little with colour combinations, but more than happy with the final results. Here are the 30 and 40 together.......
