CAS(E) this Sketch #223, CAS431 - Happy Birthday

Sometimes, you re-make a card a couple of times until you like it. Today was one of those days - I redid this card 3 times. Whew! 😅

My card design is roughly based on this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #223.

It doesn't show well in the pictures, but I brushed Wink of Stella over the sponge of the cake, and added Nuvo glitter to the whipped cream part.

I'm sharing the card at CAS431 Backgrounds gallery too.

The Paper Players #345

Here's my take on it:

I wanted to enhance the beauty of the butterfly, so I made it very simple.

CAS(E) this Sketch #222 - I'm so grateful

I'm back from vacation, and very excited to do papercrafting again! 😄

My card design is inspired by this week's CAS(E) this Sketch (#222). I liked the sketch so much that I kept the original layout.

I was not sure what color I should use for the sentiment - silver, platinum, mint green, or black. I wanted to give a soothing, summery feeling to the card, so I decided to go with silver.

Stamp: Wildflower (Concord & 9th), Basic Stripes (Simon Says Stamp), Many Thanks (Mama Elephant)
Paper: Whisper White, Pool Party (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Pool Party (Stampin' Up!), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Embossing Powder (White, Silver - Stampin' Up!), Adhesive Rhinestones (Recollections), Foam Tape (3M)
