Did You Say, "SOS500"?!

Yes! Yes, we did! It's time for our 500th challenge at Shopping Our Stash and we hope you'll come along and help us "Celebrate by the Numbers!" To mark an occasion featuring such a big number, we'd like to see projects with at least one numeral. Here's what I made:

Ok, yes, my card really does have only a single numeral, but what I really needed right now was a girly birthday card, so that's what I made. There is *SIGNIFICANT* use of older stash here; I don't think there's a single item that's less than 5 or 6 years old. I used up that sheet of cute chipboard critters; the oversized alphas were from the big box store yeaaaaarrrrs ago; the texty patterned paper was (I think) 7 Gypsies. This measures just over 6x6 and I confess it has exactly the vibe I was going for, which is always such a great feeling, isn't it?

Coincidentally, Seize the Birthday also has a (birthday-centric!) numerical theme this time, as well, though their challenge ends later this morning, so you'll need to be a bit quick. Still, they post a NEW theme every other Thursday and you can always choose their option of "Anything BIRTHDAY Goes" so you'll definitely want to check them out!

Meanwhile, head over to Shopping Our Stash to see what the crew have made to inspire you, then start thinking what you'll make to help us celebrate! ♥
