Just Us Girls #156 - Wild Card Challenge

Hi friends!  This week over at Just Us Girls is the Wild Card Challenge where we get to pick whatever type of challenge we want.  I'm hostess this week and I chose to use numbers on your card/creation.
 I decided just to go literal and use the number dies.  I needed a 40th wedding anniversary card for friends of ours, so this was the perfect challenge for me!  I started with red in mind because red is the color for a 40th anniversary.  I chose this paper by Cosmo Cricket called Circa 1934.  I like the red with the black.  The sentiment is from a free set from PTI called Everyday Classics.  I stamped it in Riding Hood Red ink and die cut it with a flag die.  The ribbon is SU's Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon.  The entire card is mounted on vintage ivory cardstock.
 I used this sketch from Clean and Simple Sketches.

You can see some great inspiration from the JUGs design team.  See for yourself by visiting these blogs.
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
