CASE Study 197 - Happy Birthday!


A quick CAS card for this week's CASE Study Challenge, where our inspiration comes from Pamela Ho and this card:



I find orange and black hard to work with. Somehow it always screams Hallowe'en to me. So I looked back at Pamela's to figure out why hers wasn't screaming Hallowe'en. And it's because (in my humble opinion) the black isn't black. Because she's used vellum, it's grey. But it shows black around the orange dot because of the way the vellum is cut. AHA!

I can't remember where that little circle sentiment came from, but I'll hold onto it forever because every once in a while, it's really useful!

The bigger dot is from Simon Says Stamp and the bling is Doodlebug.

  6. I'm not seeing anything even remotely close to ghostly here! The bold pop of bling looks great!

    I think I have that same sweet hb sentiment...that looks like it was made especially for the orange jewel!

  8. Our school colors are black/orange so I have to use them all the time. I love how you used the gray. When I saw the rhinestone I thought of my birthstone (topaz). You could swap this out for any birthstone. Fabulous take on the inspiration.

  13. Black and orange always screams Halloween to me too Ardyth, but just the simple change to grey really changes that! I love, love your card taken from the inspiration picture. And the pop of bling is awesome as is the circle stamped sentiment. Perfect! Hugs, Brenda
