Charisma cardz challenge #3 (and some exciting news!)

Good morning friends.  I back to share my DT card for the charisma cardz challenge, sorry I know it’s late yet again but only by a day lol!  The theme this week is ‘magic numbers’ so you need to have a number somewhere on your card.  As luck would have it I needed an 18th birthday card for my husband’s nephew so it was perfect timing.  I decided to use an old WOJ image ‘Charlie 007‘ as he is so useful for any type of celebration.  Here is my card:

I decided to colour his suit in this aqua/teal colour so that he would match the paper – I didn’t think a chocolate suit would look very nice!  I love this paper pad – it’s new to me, I saw it on another crafter’s blog and had to have it.  It’s MME ‘true blue’ paper pad and I got it from Crafty Emma’s store.  I already had the pink version but I think I love this one just as much as that one. 

We have two sponsors this week – which means more chances to win!  Firstly we have Lili of the Valley who are offering a £10.00 voucher for their online store.

Our second sponsor is Some Odd Girl and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digis from their online store.
