Happy 1st Birthday (Math Challenge)

Hello friends!
Today I am at the blog showcasing a card I made for the "I love Math challenge". This is the 8th Math challenge and the theme this time is Use a number or numbers on the project.

Here's my take on this theme.

 This is an unusual card that I made for this challenge. I have tried to make a CAS card wherein the base of the card is in the shape of a number.
To begin with, I traced the outline of the number on a side folding card base and cut along the outline. This gave me a number shaped openable card. I traced the same outline on a card panel, but a little smaller than the previous one. I cut along the outline of this panel. I mounted this one shaped panel on the card base using foam adhesive. This prepared the base of my card. 
I stamped all the images, coloured them with Zig markers and fussy cut them. The images are taken from "Elphie Selfie" and "Year Four" stamp set from Lawn Fawn and "You lift me up" stamp set from Craftyscrappers. 
Stamped the string at the top and adhered the banner cut outs. At the bottom corner, I highlighted the background using distress ink. Adhered the balloons and mounted the Elephant image using foam adhesive over the card. Added other details. Stamped the sentiment from my stash and edited to add "1st" to it. Added sequins to complete my card. Lastly, added glossy accents to the balloons and the birthday cap.

How did you like my card? I would love to read your feedback!

Thank you for stopping by!
