Birthdays are back… at CASEing the Catty

A new catalogue means new inspiration and we’re back around to featuring Birthdays again at CASEing the Catty. My new birthday stamp set is still on its way to me so I’ve used an oldie, but still an awesome goodie, Amazing Birthday.

I chose to CASE the card below but substitute in a different stamp set and colour combo.

Have you ever chosen a colour combo simply because two of your inkpads were sitting next to each other and you thought they looked good together? That’s how this combo happened. I saw Cucumber Crush next to Blackberry Bliss and thought they were a perfect couple. I threw in some Pool Party as well to mellow things out.

Of course the end result is quite different but you can still see the sketch. And, you’ll never guess where those dots came from! I thought my card was a bit plain and needed some more ‘festive’. I was thinking confetti and searched for an appropriate stamp. The answer? The decorations/lights/dots stamp from Festival of Trees. Who says Christmas sets are only for Christmas?

Thanks for following along on the CASEing the Catty blog hop. Click here to visit the ever lovely Alison Barclay for more birthday inspiration or here to return to CTC headquarters.
