17th Birthday Card

17th Birthday Card
I made this card for my nieces best friend Beth.
I cut the large numbers out of my Quickutz Silhouette.  It is a brilliant tool, but I don’t use it half enough, despite having a monthly download subscription for templates from Quickutz.  (I was dead chuffed recently when I managed to master print and cut on it, no mean feat).
The letters are a mishmash of two different sets of letters from American Crafts (bought from QVC).
The large flowers are made using my retro flower whale of a punch, and the smaller flowers with a similar punch. The flowers are finished off with clear flat backed gems.

Perfect!Great! This helped so much! I've seen a few
rather confusing websites lately, this cleared up some confusion I had.

Hi, I love the card and have just bought a Big Shot machine and want to buy some LARGE number dies. Do you know of any large number dies either in sets or individually. Other than that, I would be interested in buying some sets of numbers the same size as you have used in a couple of cards I saw on your blog. Do you know anyone with a Quickutz Silhouette machine who sells numbers? Regards from Australia.
