DCM little extra - We've got your number

this week for Daring Cardmakers
little extra it's a Very Cool dare...."We've Got Your Number"
Numbers and Fun? Those two words don't often appear in the same sentence, do they?Well, we'd like you to have some fun with numbers and put a numeral on your card.
and a Big Welcome Nat (Kool Kitty Musings) has agreed to join us as our Guest Designer for the next couple of weeks, Lovely to have you join in the fun Nat :O)
Ok... here's my card, and I'm sure you've been looking ever so hard to try and find the numbers... well there are some on there...promise... I've put a copy of one of the stamps I used below to prove it..lol! So I used this stamp 3 times, stamped onto 3 different PP's, and then cut them out and lined them up,
Under the front stamped image is a torn bit of dress making pattern and I've added a beautiful label holder a friend posted me :O), finish it off with a bit of my new fav thing at the moment 'pleated paper' held in place with a bit of machine stitching and your done!
If you click on my card, the image will be a little clearer I think....

this stamp and the 'inspire' one are both from Stamp-it Stamp set #siset002mc

I purchased this set from Scrap A While

So have you Dared to DARE yet?...come on I dare you!
