Level 2 Sale-a-bration and a Narwhal for TGIFC140

The TGIF Challenge this week had a lot of flexibility.  The Designers could create any card they wanted.  The challenge was to choose a designer's card to CASE.  I chose to CASE Jeanna Bohanon.  I have been drawn to black cards with a pop of color lately and I wanted to play with Sale-a-bration items as well.  This card just jumped out at me.

I also chose to use embossed Basic Black for the card base.  I embossed the lower half of the card with the Softly Falling embossing folder as my representation of water with bubbles.  I added some rhinestones and enamel shapes to further represent bubbles.

I chose to use the Celebrate You thinlit dies as my Sale-a-bration item on this card, but decided to go with something from the annual catalog for the stamped image.  I chose the narwhal from the Quirky Critters stamp set and colored it with Stampin' Blends and even added a bit of wink of stella for sparkle to its horn.  

The inside of the card has stamps from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set in the Occasions catalog.  I didn't set out planning this, but this card ended up using products from all three catalogs/flyers currently available.  Although the inside sentiment comes from a birthday stamp set, there is nothing that says this must be used as a birthday card.  It could be used for anything that deserves a celebratory card, including just for being you.  :)

Make sure you head over to TGIF Challenges to see the inspiration cards from the design team as well as the other creative entries.

  1. Awww! Thank you so much for choosing my card! That Narwhal is perfect for it too. I have no clue why I don't have him yet! I really appreciate you playing along with TGIF Challenges this week!!!!

    1. Thanks Jeanna. Your card just spoke to me and resonated with my style. I knew I wanted to CASE it. We love the narwhal around here, seems a bit mystical, but is oh so very real.
