50th birthday card for cat lover

Something a bit different for me. A neighbour and friend is 50 today and it took some thought about what I could put on his card. He has two cats, one is black and white so I thought maybe another iris folding if I could find a pattern. 

I found the pattern online and used card from my stash. I printed a personalised sentiment and matt and layered my 8x8in white card. I die cut the numbers using Tattered Lace dies. I cut them in white and black card and off set them when I stuck them down. I cut a scalloped circle with a die from a Xcut nesting set. I cut red stars using a punch.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
