50th Birthday Circle Easel Card

A card I made for an internet "pen pal". 

I printed the 50 out onto white card stock
then carefully trimmed it out with an Xacto knife. 
The numbers are actually leftover from another
50th birthday card I made that became a shaker card. 

Papers, card stock, stamp images, paper clay and mold,
die cut scallop edge card and scallop edge border punch
are all long retired from Stampin' Up!

The fern punch is from Martha Stewart.

Whisper White card stock numbers stamped with
white craft ink and a stampin around wheel
made a nice subtle two tone effect.

Paper clay flower I made and painted with acrylic craft paints.



Thanks for looking =)

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
