Today’s CAS challenge at SCS today was a breeze for me—to make Miss Boo, aka Jen, a birthday card in her favorite color of orange!  Since orange is one of my favorites too, I went to work, using some Marrakesh DP and Karen’s sketch for this week:



Since the papers had a more sketchy, vintage theme, I chose a vintage stamp from SU, Friends 24-7, and a birthday sentiment from PTI, which I cut apart and stamped separately, so that I could get the overlapping effect.   I did add a little twill at the top, I hope that still qualifies it for CAS!!!  A quick card that made ME happy on this cold, damp, dreary spring day here in SE PA!  Happy Birthday, Jen!

  • Stamps:  Friends 24-7, PTI Vintage Picnic
  • Paper:  Very Vanilla, BG Marrekesh
  • Ink:  Apricot Appeal, Dusty Durango
  • Acc:  Nesties, Twill

Love the CAS look! The colours are so pretty together, I especially like the Apricot Appeal image behind the bird!

Have a great day!

So pretty LeAnne, I'm not one to work with orange (no matter who likes it) but this is a great one. Love the bow, it adds just the right touch. Happy Monday!

this is a stunningly beautiful card. Such a simple sketch, but you have added such great little details to make it amazing.

LeAnne, this is WONDERFUL! The paper strips and the layering of the images are so prettily coordinated!
