Numbers, numbers, and more numbers!

Here I am showcasing 3 cards I have made recently at the request of my friends. Using the awesome Gorgeous Grunge stamp set from SU and a little bling, I think these turned out GREAT! 

The first card is for a Sweet Sixteen. I asked for a favorite color and was told Lime Green. So I found the closest cardstock I had to Lime Green, used my Cricut for the numbers, some Stickles for the sparkle, a few blings from my stash and came up with this - - -

I chose Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie to accent the Lime Green. 
I think that color combo turned out quite well. I used a mask to create some space for the numbers. 

Soon after that card, it was time for my husband's nieces birthday. She turned the Big 8! I thought this layout would work well for her too. 

(bad edit, sorry)

Her favorite color is Purple. I had run out of Concord Crush (which I think is a great dark purple!!) so I had to go begging borrowing from my friend down the street. 
**I am so disappointed that Concord Crush is discontinued. 

I shared the Purple 8 card with my Facebook friends and family and had a friend request a card with 24 and use bright colors. So, I basically copied the Sweet Sixteen card and used 24.

I had my friends tell me I did a nice job. And I inspired one of them to create her own!  I don't think I have ever been the inspiration for a card before, LOL. Here is the link for that -
