CAS22 Hoppy Birthday

This week's CAS challenge is CAS22 Hey, Hey, It's Your Birthday! I made this card yesterday as I was using every image in Green Thumb to check it off my New Year's Resolution List. (I resolved to use every image stamp I have...this is gonna take a while!) Imagine my surprise when I woke this morning and discovered I already had a card for it.

The only thing not self-evident about this card is how I put a narrow strip of old olive cardstock behind the cameo coral piece. The circles in the threading water punch are thus the olive gem in the center of the flower. It's a nice little detail that kicks the card up a notch, don't you think?

cardstock: PTI vintage cream, SU cameo coral, old olive
stamps: PTI Green Thumb
ink: Versamagic
accessories: threading water punch, dimensionals, Hero Arts Olive gem


  1. LOVE your CAS22 card! The colors, scalloped edge and bling are perfect! What a great CAS card!

  2. I know I already said this when I commented on your card in the SCS gallery, but I love the grasshopper on the flower stem. Its such an unexpected element which makes it so fun. Such a pretty card.

  3. I like the olive behind the coral, it looks really great! That's a great way to add some color without it being too much. I'm going to try to remember that!

  4. Beautiful, Susan! I may have to CASE this great LO!

  5. It's such a cute stamp,I can see the olive paper too :o)

  6. What a fabulous little detail to have the Old Olive behind your scallop edge.
    Oh, and the genius of using Old Olive and Cameo Coral together!!!

  7. Great use of that grasshopper image, and the olive behind the coral really brings all the colors together.

  8. Oh how cute! I have this set, I think it was the first PTI set I ever got and haven't used it in forever! Sweet!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
