Happy Birthday by the Numbers!

There's a new stamp set in the Occasions Catalog called Number of Years. 
It consists of mostly large number stamps (awesome!), a lovely leaf spray with different flower images to choose from and a few different greetings. 
It's a great stamp set when you need to create a specific age or date or year card. 
But then, what do you do when you want something more generic? 
Well, here's an idea - make a background stamp with it! 

Here's the card I created:

And here's how I set up my stamp:

One of the things I love about the photopolymer and clear mount stamps is the ability to arrange multiple stamps on one clear block to create my own designs. This technique is especially fun for making background images! 
Have you ever tried doing this? 

The card I created is really simple and one you can re-create in just 10 minutes or less!
The Night of Navy card base is a standard 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded to make a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card. 
The Soft Sky layer is 4" x 5 1/4" as is the Whisper White panel on the inside. 
I stamped the floral spray on a scrap of Whisper White and punched it out with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch. 
The greeting was stamped on more scrap and hand cut with Paper Snips. 
The Night of Navy Ribbon banner is about 14" of ribbon, casually adhered to the back of the circle, popped up on dimensionals.  

Here's a list of supplies I used:
