I found a new challenge blog - Pinspired Challenges. You know how I love Pinterest! There is no CAS requirement, but you can bet that I'll be staying true to my CAS style!
Here's the inspiration photo for their first challenge:
I focused on the fun, bright colours, the different sized dots and the big number. My daughter's friend turned 10 yesterday, so we'll deliver this to her at church on Sunday.
I used MFT's Vanity Plate Alphabet for the numbers, The Stamps of Life sentiment and various solid dots picked up over the years. I used various colours of ink, then coloured the dots with a Versamark pen and embossed with iridescent embossing powder for sparkle!
ETA (January 21): Look, I'm a PinPal! This card was chosen as one of the Top 3! Woohoo!
Can't wait to play again!
