MIM #155 - confetti

It took some thinking about how to tackle this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink. I've got a heart cover plate but I've sworn off heart related cards for a while. I do have the confetti garlands, but didn't really want to spend a long time snipping them apart. The 'by the numbers' border looked a bit big so I decided to use the numbers from the Headline alphabet set, which were still wired together (which tells you how many times I've used them before today) but made die cutting them much quicker.
Having grouped them all face down I used a piece of painters tape to pick up a strip of numbers. I added a few extras with liquid glue to fill any obvious holes and stuck the tape to a soft stone card base with scor tape. The sentiment is from Think Big favorites and is stamped in Enchanted Evening ink
