Polkadoodle Milestone Birthday Card

It's another week here at Poolkadoodles and it's Fliss' turn to take the rein's. Fliss' daughter will be turning 21 and she has asked us to create a Milestone Card using any Polkadoodles CD.
My cousin Gavin is 30 in a few weeks time and I adore him to bits. You can always be gauranteed to smile and laugh when you in his company, so I wanted my card to reflect his personality. I have used papers and text from the Back to Nature CD. I decided not to pop any images on my card as the numbers are so large.
I layered the large numbers with some patterned paper from the CD and then I glazed the circles on the patterned paper. After that dried I then sprinkled the edges with some blue glitter. I also printed out some circle text to spell out Happy and layered this onto some edged acetate.
I just hope that Gavin like's this card, I now have to find a funky gift to go with this! Pregnancy update for those of you following along (19 weeks now), Peanut is now getting bigger. It feels and looks like I ate way too..........many pies, lol. I'm quite lucky that I have scan's every four weeks to make sure things are ok. My nephew Freddie came to my last scan and looked like a goldfish whilst staring at the screen. He handed over his pocket money in order to get his own print out picture of peanut, bless. Anyway, enough of my ramblings and I hope to see your cards on our challenge site this week. Take care Nettie.xx
