Countdown...

So, I had this wonderful idea in my head for a card using Papertrey's new Numbers die. I'm not quite sure the execution was as flawless as the idea..lol.

I'm not sure if it even makes SENSE. I was thinking about a countdown and then thought about that in regards to a baby's birth. Ok, so here is my card:



Here is a close up of the sentiment:


So, you see I was thinking "5,4,3,2,1...Welcome to the World!! Am I the only one who thinks that's kinda funny? Hmm..maybe so..lol



I used this weeks lovely Color Throwdown colors of Blushing Bride, pear Pizazz, and Kraft.



Does the card make sense? Do you see what I was trying to do? I asked Ava what she thought and she said "Is it Happy New Year?"...wow. LOL. I still like it, though, even if I do have to explain it to the recipient. :)

Well, we're going to get passports today (don't ask why we waited so long cause it's a long, boring, bureaucratic red taped infused story..), so off I go to venture out into the land of the living. Thanks for stopping by! Laters...

Cute idea, Keva, and well executed! I just used one of my number dies for the first time today. So very cool. Thanks for the new idea!

Ohh, how I need those number dies! Why did I think I could wait???

I love your countdown idea and I think it will definitely make sense to the mom-to-be... she's been counting down for 9 months!

Totally makes sense to me. Genius in fact with the old countdown touch. Works well with the card orientation you've chosen too. Adorable.

Yep, I got it right away, and I like the longer card too. Sweet colors for a sweet card!
