CAS 33 Take 2

This week's CAS challenge is a sketch, based on this card by cookiebaker. I love the crisp, clean lines of her card - there are so many possibilities. That being said, I couldn't make just one card! Visit my previous post to view the other card I created for this week's challenge.

I think I will call this card "Preppy Birthday." LOL! Don't you love that So Saffron/Ballet Blue argyle print? It's from the Pawsitively Prints designer series paper from the Holiday Mini. I also used a touch of the same dsp under the Clear Button in the corner. This card was quick and easy to put together and would be appropriate for just about anybody.
Stamps: On Your Birthday
Paper: So Saffron, Ballet Blue, Whisper White Pawsitively Prints dsp
Ink: Ballet Blue
Accessories: Clear Button, 3/4" circle punch, white string, Mat Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool

I guess I was on a birthday kick! For this card, I stamped the balloon image from Beary Best Friends twice and colored them with my Gable Green and Tempting Turquoise markers. I added a Jumbo Brad along with some ribbon and decided to glam up the balloons just a bit, by adding Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds. Wouldn't this make an adorable kid's birthday card?
Stamps: Beary Best Friends, On Your Birthday, Polka Dot background stamp
Paper: Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Black Staz-On, Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green
Accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, Jumbo Brad, Crop-A-Dile, Tempting Turquoise 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Black & White gingham ribbon, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds
