A Birthday Card for a Couple of Challenges

Hello everyone!! Just popping in today to show you a super quick card I created using pattern paper and a couple CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. I am not on the blog or anything, just using some odds and ends to get things done.

The inspiration for my card was the sketch #166 from the Global Design Project.

I have needed birthday cards up the wazoo this month so this was a fabulous sketch to use for my card.

I started off by layering a pattern paper scrap over a teal card base. The paper is from Scenic Route-a company that is no longer around. I have been attempting to use pattern paper more on my cards as I have a TON and it can really make a card easier to make.

Over the pattern paper, I added some embossed paper that Michele Ferguson had sent me eons ago.

I used an old PTI die to create the orange border and stamped the sentient with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink using the Whole Shebang stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

The orange present was stamped awhile ago with CAS-Fridays Partridge in a Pear Tree and fussy cut out. I had colored it in with Copics and added some Nuvo Ripened Pumpkin Crystal Dots for some interest. I popped it up on the card using adhesive foam.

This whole card took me about ten minutes to complete because I used the patterned paper and only really had to stamp the sentiment. Everything else was scraps or in my stash.

Just wanted to let you know that CAS-ual Fridays Stamps is having a retirement sale going on right now.

There are some FABULOUS sets still available. Hop on over and snap them up before they are gone!!

I am also entering this card into the Seize the Birthday Challenge-no toppings.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a FABULOUS night!!
