Think BIG - PTI Anniversary

Yesterday's challenge was to "think big"! Here's a couple little "numbers" (wink) for ya. The qualify as "big" for two reasons the use of the large numbers and the monumental birthday that they are for!!

It's late enough that I think I can let the cat out of the bag. My baby brother turns 30 on 2/13. So what better way to celebrate than to receive 30 birthday cards from his big sis! That's my Project 30! I thought it was such a fun and unique idea-the whole family got involved. I've posted several of the cards already and will trickle the rest in over the next week or so. Let me tell ya, there are some dosies!

This first card came from the idea that Nichole used here during the January release of By the Numbers dies and stamps. Here is used just the dies to cut out 30's after i used the Polka Dot Basics II impression plate. I then ran the numbers through my Xyron and voila! I LOVE how this turned out!!
For the next card, I used By the Numbers again, but this time gave it a more vintage/retro look. Cause ya know when someone turns thirty.... they're now vintage! LOL!

Well if 30 is "vintage", then I'm positively ANCIENT lol! Both of these cards are so FUN, I really love the big, bold, bright numbers on the first card and the cool patterned papers on the second card!
