Oops I Forgot....

Supplies: Stamps: Happiest of Birthdays  Paper: Bazzill ocean breeze, crumb cake, white  Ink: crumb cake  Accessories: fancy fan letterpress, lace ribbon border punch, foam blending tool, scallop border punch, dmc floss, Tim Holtz paper distressing tool

...your birthday!  This week's CAS challenge is to make a belated birthday card.  I definately could use a few of these!  I also made this card using the FTL151 sketch, and a couple of Dare To Get Dirty challenges for fan club members over at SCS! 

I had fun distressing on this card!  It's not something I do too often, but when I get going it is hard to stop!  I started inking up the embossed layer, and then I got out my distressing tool and distressed the edge of my embossed layer.  Then I thought I'd distress the banner!  Then I thought I better put the tool away! :) 

It's been a busy week, I didn't have much time for cardmaking.  My summer is coming to an end faster than I want it to, and I am trying to get all of the "projects" done that I had wanted to. We'll see if I get some cardmaking in this week.  I want to paint my crafty room....we'll see! :)

  2. SO pretty, Terry! You really have a knack with the CAS cards - this is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing - if I lived closer, I'd come paint with you!!! Hugs...

  4. I like your distressing, adds so much to the card!
