Celebrate Today - Bright and Cheerful Happy Birthday Card

So several days ago I saw on my Facebook group page that CASEing the Catty  is looking for new crafters to join them.  Being as hopeful as I am I recon this is a great opportunity to keep my creative juice flowing and increase my blog exposure.  I happily raised my hand and looked into their blog.

Everyone is so talent, no doubt, and excitingly this will be my first card challenge in Australia.  I feel so relevant being in my homeland now.  No more linkage to a remote continent whereas it's fun to join the challenge, but at the end of the day the prize is in USA, (not that I won any) and I still felt alone.

So I quickly go through page 10-25 on my new Stampin' Up catalogue, and find that I have a stamp set which allows me to make a sunny and bright birthday card for this challenge.  It is "Celebrate Today", the stamp set that I ordered along with my very first Stampin' Up order only three months ago.  How time flies.

So I made this Happy Birthday card yesterday but by the time I finished it was dark.  I had to wait till this morning to take the photos.

This card is for the Birthday Card challenge of CASEing the Catty

It's a simple card using the 2016/2017 in colours - Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.  I love how Stampin' Up colours are all coordinated with a result of a clean and balanced colour scheme.

I didn't know I would like Peekaboo Peach so much.  After-all it was not the first ink pad that I opened when I received my order.  Peekaboo is bright with a bit of softness, and is a softer version of Tangello Twist.

This cheerful card is so easy to make.  All you need is the Celebrate Today stamp and die set, a shiny sequin strip and off you go.  Anyone can do it! 

I use the following materials for the project:
