A big one! (but don't tell everyone!)

My friend recently had a big birthday...
but she didn't want the world to know and remind her...
so this card I made for her, had her big number on...but little! lol! I LOVE that stamp - it was a freebie on a card-making mag earlier this year.
This is the first time I have used it...
and I paper-pieced each slat on each house.
I used some lovely pastel docrafts papers.
(and I had to add some butterflies to this card.)
I spent a long time on this card and loved every minute.
She's worth it ;)
I would like to enter this into the following challenges....

I really like the nice soft colours you used for this card Vicki, and the way you put the banner across the top with the recipient's name... great idea!
