SCS Dare to Get Dirty - an anniversary card

If you are a member of SplitCoastStampers and have joined the Fan Club (fee required), you are eligible to participate in the week long Fan club Dirty Girl challenges.  There are 40 some different challenges and lots of prizes.  I think the deadline is Aug. 8.
Yesterday at church I heard that friends are celebrating their 61st anniversary - if you look at my blog regularly you see lots of big numbers here Tee hee!  Since we are residents of the AZ desert, I thought a  palm tree theme would be appropriate, and I used some DP (Debbie Mumm) that has been languishing in my drawer for a lon time!  I did some of the cuts with the dull blade I keep to create rough edges. Both stamps are SU - Balmy Breezes and Fundamental Phrases.  I used watercolor pencils for the image; Cuttlebug die numbers, and a bit of Washi tape. (At this rate I will have Washi tape for the next 50 years LOL!)  Even though we have palm trees all year long, they still make me think of summer and the 110 days we have been having.
