The Paper Shelter Challenge #342 - Letters or Numbers

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week the challenge is to use letters or numbers, one I actually found really hard to do as I don't put ages on a birthday card unless I am making it for a specific birthday and I have none coming up. I had a hunt through all my stamps and finally managed to find a sentiment with a 2 in it instead of the word to, so used that!

I used the adorable Ducklings stamp and added a lot of background colouring to it so it looked like the ducklings were going for a walk round their pond. I love how this one came out, but it did take a while to colour! Worth it though!
