friends 30th birthday card


So i made this card for my friend who lives in London and i can't make her birthday celebrations, due to lack of finances and now family commitments. last year i made loads of 30 cards, but never managed to blog any of them, but i used up all my 3 and 0's. so i had a little think and remembered these letters from home bargains 39p a pack and 2 of each letter per pack. i had already used them for a congratulations card so had find a way to make 'thirty' from them and this what i came up with! 
this is another card where i'm trying to use up old things. the paper is from claire curds paper stack and the ribbon was from when woolies closed down!!!

i'd like to enter it into the following challenges
card making mama's- something old
fussy and fancy- polka dots
truly scrumptious- something forgotten
whimsy stamps- pearls or bling
