Paper craft project no. 144: Happy happy birthday

2014-02-21 CAS Happy happy birthday

Quickie post today, as I’m entering this card to a couple of challenges that are ending in a few hours. Eeeek! Talk about cutting it close. Made this card this morning as a sort of request to DH — since I’m going to be devoting the rest of today to getting the icky draft for my business case done, I made a small request: that I need a few a minutes at my craft table to create a card. In the meantime, he can get breakfast started — I think it’s fresh salad, brown rice, and some spicy vegan mandarin orange chicken on the menu :-)

This week, Less Is More and CAS on Sunday are looking for masculine cards so I decided to go for monochromatic masculine colors — Teal Zeal (Memento) and Broken China, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks.  Then at The Paper Players, it’s stars on a CAS project. I stamped the stars (from 7Gypsies), spatters, and sentiment (from STAMPloration) in different blue inks. The “happy” on the teal textured cardstock is stamped in Unicorn ink (Hero Arts).
