Happy Birthday


Good snowy morning, friends!!  We are having a little snow storm this morning so there’s nothing to do but stamp, aw, I know…terrible! LOL  Well, it happened again…the stars were all aligned when making this card and I just LOVE how it turned out.  It’s inspired by the new CASE Study Muse, Eva Dobilas.  Here’s her fabulous card…


What is there NOT to be inspired by this?  First of all, I thought, hey! Where did she get that cool stamp border punch?  But upon checking her blog, it seems it’s from a digital cutting machine so I can’t have it! Rats!  So I moved on to be inspired by the colours, stacked layers, red sentiment, and the black and white strip that I turned into that fabulous gingham ribbon from Pizzazz Aplenty.  My green panel is stamped with PTI’s Giga Guidelines and the sentiment panel is made with Verve’s Vintage Oval Frame and matching stamp :)  The red stitching on my card also mimics the pinked edge of Eva’s card.  Oh, I just love this and LOVE that my camera picked up the vibrant colours :)  Okay, I’m off to go food shopping before the snow gets too deep!  Have a fabulous Sunday :) {no, I don’t follow football, but will be watching the commercials and half time show!! LOL}.


what’s in it?

stamps: verve vintage oval frame, pti inside & out birthday, waltzing mouse labels no. 14

ink: versafine onyx, su old olive, real red

paper: su more mustard, poppy parade, old olive, pti white, springmoss

Love the layered shapes in the middle and those colours are fabulous! Lovely touch with the gingham ribbon. Fabulous case.

You need to watch Sports Net or the like later on as we don't get some of the American commercials up here as they dub in Canadian ones - ugh! I always look forward to the Budwiser one :)

OMG - what an amazing take on our CASE study this week, Diva! So many similar elements yet with your own Diva-esque spin on it - FABULOUS!
Did you enjoy the Superbowl half time show? It was on at like 2am over here and I just don't understand American Football: gimme me English Football instead! :D
Sorry I digress! Thank so much for joining us on CASE Study this week!
