I decided to do something fun and cheerful for my celebration card. When I saw that CAS-ual Fridays was doing a summery challenge it sounded great: white, tan and a bright color. I wanted to use turquoise and thought white and tan would be a great trio.
I already had in mind using this stamp set from January's Creative Stamping magazine and I decided to do something a bit different with it. I paper pieced the dress from bright paper and used a spotted paper for her apron. The greeting is from the same set.
I backed her against a sparkly tan sheet that has been in my stock and used an off-cut of the turquoise in her dress for the border. The spotted ribbon is ancient in my stash and I thought this was a good was to add texture.
I tried candies and all sorts to finish it off and settled on a little trio of gems - 3 colors, 3 gems, why not? - and really like how clean and bright it is. I hope it's CAS enough for the challenge but more than anything I'm just pleased it's a cheerful birthday card for our MAWTT challenge.
Looking forward to see your projects this week!
