50th Birthday Card

We're off to a surprise party tonight for a friend who is turning 50.  I created this card using Maile Belle's 30th birthday card as inspiration.  I cut the numbers, scalloped circle frame and the other frame with my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software.  The scalloped circle is from Two Peas in a Bucket.  The Pale Plum piece is just scalloped circle f from the same file squished. I'm wishing now that I had put the numbers on more of a slant, but I was struggling with them and finally got fed up and went with straight.  I should have walked away for a bit and came back and tried it.  Oh well! 

Thanks for looking,
