Happy Birthday for CCSC #263

Hello Folks!

Welcome Back for another Sketch Challenge!

It just happened that I fell into 3 in a row!

Here is Today’s Sketch Challenge


CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #263



I had to take a picture of the sketch, I couldn’t get the links picture to copy…

I could print the picture, but I couldn’t save it to my file. It showed a

blank tile in the file! Oh well, this will have to do!


Here is my take on the Sketch Challenge!


I first cut the DSP to sit angularly across the front of the card…and then I

had a brain moment…I decided to use the cut off corners instead!


Here is the inside of my Card!


For the balloons I used the Emerald Envy for the outline, and then

the Lemon Lime Twist for the solid color!


Here is my Card with a stamped to match envelope!


When I first saw the DSP…those ‘bubbles’ looked like balloons to me…

I decided to go with the balloons for that ‘Birthday Pop’!

(and not the popping of the balloon! LOL!)

Stock and Measures:


Soft Sky-card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4 folded in half on the score

Whisper White-inside panel, 4″ X 5 1/4″

Emerald Envy-corner piece mats, greeting, a balloon on front

Lemon Lime Twist- a balloon on front


Naturally Eclectic-corner pieces

Stamp Sets:

Balloon Celebration-balloons inside and on envelope

Party With Cake-retired, inside sentiment

Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads:

Emerald Envy-inside sentiment and balloon outlines

Lemon Lime Twist-solid balloons inside and on envelope


Big Shot-die cutting machine

Happy Birthday Thinlits-greeting

Balloon Punch-2 balloons on front, popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals


Here is my Card again!


I did use a White Gel Pen to make the ‘shine marks’ on the front balloons!

I do have to say…this looks like a party!

Another Card for my stash…this could either be masculine or feminine!

But, I probably will put it with the masculine cards!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Celebrations to you ALL!
