CASology #160 + CQC #304 + Seize the Birthday

Today I took the CASology Week 160: Number, added the Colour Q Challenge 304 colors and Seize the Birthday Anything the Flies to make this card.

An MFT stencil and Mustard Seed Distress Ink were used to create the sunshine panel inserted into the dark gray Smoky Shadow frame. The birthday portion of the sentiment is stamped and heat embossed on the frame before the die cut is added.

The Avery Elle number balloons are tied to the "happy" to keep them from flying away. Is that stretching the "Anything that Flies" challenge at Seize the Birthday? Thankfully they always have an Anything Goes option.


Thanks for stopping by,
