1st Birthday Card

My sweet niece (and Godchild) just turned one!  I was debating at what kind of card to make for her when I finally decided to create the one you see here.
She had pink and flowers for her birthday theme, which helped me decide on the papers and embellishments.  The 1 cut files are from the Nested Numbers set at SVG Attic.  This card could easily be created with any age.  Or you could even use their Nested Alphabet to make this card with a monogram instead of the age.
I used layers of foam tape between layers of the number to add lots of dimension.  For embellishments, I used crinkled seam binding, Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine and lots of fun buttons.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
