Gingersnap Creations Challenge: NUMBERS

It's the 4th Wednesday in January and that means the 4th January challenge at Gingersnap Creations blog is posted and the challenge this week is NUMBERS. Serendipity Stamps is this month's sponsor and is offering some great prizes so be sure to enter in on the challenge for your chance to play along and possibly win a great stamp set.

For my card for the NUMBERS challenge is a bit of a play on the words in the Serendipity Stamps sentiment stamp "It's not the Years in your life that count, it's the Life in your Years." You're only the NUMBER of years you feel rather than what your birth age number is. OK, I might have stretched the challenge a bit, but I really love this sentiment and the bicycle stamp and thoroughly enjoyed using it in this week's NUMBERS challenge.

Card Recipe:

Stamps: Serendipity Stamps stamps #219G Bicycle and 574E (sentiment)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black and Stazon Orange. Image colored with copic markers
Paper: K & Company
Accessories: Nestibilites oval dies, Flower Soft, Machine stitching, Stickles (distressed orange), Ribbon (dashes and dots), Prima Flowers and brads.
