WWC Happy Birthday Theme with CAS Sketches

     I don't know about you, but I find myself needing Birthday cards every single month.  I love when Watercooler Wednesday challenge birthday theme comes around.  I can always think of someone who needs a card coming up within the next week or two.  Someday, I'd love to have a stash of birthday cards ready to go.  We'll see if that ever happens.

 The sketch for CAS Colours & Sketches was a perfect fit for this card.  I sponged the sentiment paper and inside of the card to match the DSP used for the other rectangles on the front.  Balloons and presents always scream birthday to me so I cut some out of the remaining sheet of DSP to decorate the inside of the card.

Check out the inspiration cards by the design teams and other creative entries in these challenges.

  1. Hi Angel, birthdays fill my calendar, too, coming up pretty well each month. Some months seem a bit busy with birthdays. That's when a stash of cards would be great, right? Love the DSP you've used for your background as well as the way you've arranged those narrow rectangles into a cake. Great idea! Love the way the balloons and gifts continue into the card. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
