70th Birthday Card for a Special Lady!

This evening we were invited to an open house to celebrate the 70th birthday of a very dear lady.  She has been one of my hubby's best customers over the years and he really wanted me to meet her and her family.   He also said, "you need to make her one of your special cards!"  
So I did.  And I want to share it with you because I love this designer paper so much and think you will too.   It's from a 6 x 6 Paper Pad "Fab{U}lous" by Simple Stories.
 The card is a 5-1/4" square and I've used Kraft cardstock as the base.  The banners were attached to the floral paper and then I stitched around all the layers before adhering to the base card.  I used my Cricut to die cut the numbers from Kraft cardstock and stamped the top layer with a canvas background stamp for added dimension and color.
I've embellished with a mini clip, button, bakers twine and bit of grosgrain ribbon.  And the inside was finished with more of the Fab{U}lous designer paper.  The sentiment is a Hampton Art stamp that reads "age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying YOU".  
It sure feels good to be stamping and sharing my creations with you.
Thanks so much for your comments last week!  
{HUGS} to all!
