It's Just a Number

Here are two cards I have made. Both people are celebrating major Birthdays. A chap who is turning 40 and a lady who is about to celebrate turning 50. The lady is the friend I am visiting in Durham to help celebrate her birthday.
I so enjoyed using acetate on the book mark and card that I decided I would use again. I have used the acetate with the numbers, of which I embossed then coloured with alcohol inks and then again embossed the main piece of acetate for added interest on the card. I used the CB Happy Birthday folder for the embossing. I embossed on the main/base of card with the CB numbers folder. The chaps card I accidently 'debossed' but decided I liked it and so left it.
I have used again on both cards the gorgeous K &Co K'ology papers that Dear Max so very kindly sent me. They really are truly lovely, I especially like the paper emblazened with the word 'Beautiful' of which I used on the 50th card.
I have decided not to add any sentiment as I could not decide, even though I have some beautiful sentiment stamps, making a decision was hard so I came to the conclusion that maybe it is 'meant to be' it was saying 'leave well alone' as when I cannot quite make a decision then I Faff, that is when I head for trouble, and I end up saying to myself 'Why oh why cannot you leave well alone' I am happy to go with these thoughts.
