Hello friends and followers - happy last week of October. This week at ATS&M Challenge #69 is CAS. I thought I'd switch gears a bit from the halloween track that I've been on lately and make a birthday card. I apologize for the poor photo - think I need to recharge the camera (that really is a white card base).
The sentiment is from one of my oldest and most favorite sets. You might have seen another one of these stamps used yesterday on my card for ABC Challenges. While I had the set out, I thought it might be fun to use another one of them.
My colors were based on the pretty combo at Dynamic Duos #76 (see below) - the sentiment is in Perfect Plum and the balloons are in Wisteria Wonder.
and since I did go with a one layer card I'm also sharing it over at the ATSM sister challenge called ATCAS where the code word is... yup, you guessed it ONE LAYER.
One layer CAS cards are very difficult for me - but hey...that's why it's called a challenge - it's all about stretching yourself creatively :o) Several of my DT pals from ATSM also are on the DT for ATCAS - they do such a fabulous job and I don't get to play along over there as much as I might like to - except for today.
I sure hope that you will go visit the rest of the DT at ATS&M and then decide to play along with us this week. There's a fabulous prize to be won - how can you resist the temptation to try????
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me - I'm sure glad that you did. Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
