Wonderful Words: Birthday

Hey all!  Just slipping in one more card fro the CASE Study #150 challenge.  My first card I made before was a more literal interpretation.  This card uses the colorway from the inspiration card.  I would have never thought to put theses colors together but love the combo.
I used Papertrey Inks Wonderful Words: Birthday set and their white cardstock.  Stampin Up inks.

I also will enter this in the Moxie Fab and Passion For Papertrey Birthday card challenges.  Thanks for dropping by for a visit!

Making Wishes

Sooo if I am making wishes, I wish to win a challenge!  This weeks Case Study challenge starts with a card made by Jocelyn Olson as our inspiration.  Her card is the pic below.
This is my card created with PTI Lovely Layers stamp set and cardstock.
The ink is all from Stampin Up.

I also wanted to enter it in the Less Is More not a square or rectangle card challenge.  So round it was cut with Spellbinders round dies.  I will also enter this in the Birthday Card challenge at Passion for Papertrey and Moxie Fab.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Hello!  I have been playing with the watercolor crayons again.  I was going for a soft, cool watery look.  I started using the stamp sets Sketched Shapes and Think Big Favorites from Papertrey ink. Stamped the back of the polka dot with water color crayons then over stamped the image with the sketchy side in Aqua Mist ink.  This was the Make-It-Monday #125 challenge of Defined Watercolor.  I then stamped the greeting by inking the image with Aqua Mist ink and highlighted the bottom of the image with Hawaiian Shores ink to ground it.
I took regular silver sequins and colored them with aqua permanent marker and filled them with crystal effects.  The marker had dulled the sequin and the crystal effects made them shiny again.

So I will be entering this card in these challenges:
CAS-Friday: CFC#109 Polka Dot challenge
CAS-ology: Cool challenge
Papertrey Ink: MIM#125 Defined Watercolored challenge
Passion for Papertrey: Birthday challenge
Moxie Fab: Birthday Card challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by!
