Hello Stampers and Happy Saturday to You!! Yesterday was my Friday off from work so I chose to spend my day playing with paper! Isn’t this a fun birthday card? This week’s sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch was my jumping off point:
It’s a great sketch! Clean and crisp and you have to love those banners off the side!! While I was looking through my supplies for more inspiration I came across a frame that I had cut out for a window shaker and accidentally adhered the dimensional foam to the frame without adding the clear window first…oops! I kept it, thinking it would be a nice frame for something anyway and here I am not one week later, using it that way! It is perfect for this sketch! I love when things like that happen!
Isn’t the sentiment fun?? This stamp set from Studio Calico came in a card kit I purchased last summer and haven’t used yet. Unfortunately, the name of the set wasn’t on the packaging and I can’t see it on their website, so it shall remain nameless, but it was a perfect size and shape for this sketch! After finding the stamp, the rest of the papers and ink colors came together quickly. I used the squiggle and asterisk stamps from my Favorite Flowers Simon Says Stamp set to make some fun party confetti.
Darling balloons from Clearly Besotted Stamps take the place of the banners in the sketch and definitely round this fun birthday card out. You can’t see from the picture of course, but I have added Wink of Stella to my confetti which adds fun sparkle to the card 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with another fun challenge from The Paper Players…I can’t wait to share!
Wishing you joy and blessings!
