IB157 CAS Birthday

 Hi peeps!  Wow, this week is whizzing by!  It's already time for a new Inspired By challenge!  Here's our pretty prompt for today:

I just loved the colors in the prompt, so I pulled out a die that I hadn't used in a long time to create some simple flowers for a birthday card.  Here we go:

I had been pushing this little scrap of green gingham around my desk, so I was happy to put it to good use, adding a sentiment from a sweet retired set, stamped on vellum and adhered on top of the stems with a little gem embellishment:

And I used a sentiment from the same set for the inside:

Instead of using the Inspired By sketch this week, I chose to use the sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches:

and since I used a "splashy" stamp from Gorgeous Grunge behind my flowers, I am entering this into the Splish Splash challenge at The Spot too!

I hope you'll get out some pretty stamps and ink and play with our challenge this week!  You can use the photo prompt, the sketch, or both!  Check out what all the designers did at Inspired By! And while you're there, welcome our two talented new designers, Silke Ledlow and Cindy Beach!  So happy to have them with us...I am going to have to "up" my game for sure! Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy got an interesting gift for Christmas from Wayne's's a kit to make your own markers!   Check it out:

Pick an ink color and fill the tube, then insert the wick:

Watch as the wick soaks up all the ink:

Assemble the rest of the marker...and try it out!  Cool!

Looks like there are lots of markers there to make lots of fun colors!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Very sweet card LeAnne....That is one of my favorite dies...nice for all occasions....I have used it for Sympathy and Just A Note. Like the scrunge shadow effect....will try that. Miss Cassidy....I adore her...she is up for trying anything. Love that about that child. She seems so easy...Whatcha say Grandma....ha.

I recognize that sweet little die! In fact I'm pretty sure you might find it in my own die stash! This is wonderful, LeAnne!
Darling use of that scrap of the cutest gingham around - I'm so happy to see it again!

Love that blue flower diecut and perfectly paired with the gingham - it would have been a shame to not use it up! Thanks for playing along over at CAS Colours and Sketches too!
