Just playing around...

Hi Everyone!  Happy Wednesday.  I hope your week is going well.  Mine is going pretty well - a little slow but maybe is was because my weekend was so quick.

I decided to squeeze in a little stamping time so I could play along with some favorite challenges.  First up is it's CAS-ual Fridays 1st birthday so we're to create a CAS birthday card.  Then There She Goes has an inspiration photo - I went with the colors.  And, of course, I have to play along with my favorite sketch challenge (besides TMS) The Sweet Stop.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.  I love orange, it's like yellow, you can't help but feel happy with this color.


This card is a 4 1/4 square card which is a nice sized card to add in a gift bag or on top of a gift wrapped box.  My card features stamps from Raisin Boat - the set is called Bloom, it contains some beautiful flowers and lovely sentiments.  I love the font of the words in this sent - its like perfect penmanship.

Supplies:
Image:  Bloom (Raisin Boat)
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Orange (Bazzill Basics)
Copics:  Y15, Y17, YR04, YR07, YR09
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Scalloped Circle Nestabilities
Embellishments:  buttons (Buttons Galore & More), gold satin ribbon (Offray)
