Let's Celebrate

For a chance to win some Blog Candy, please be sure to leave a comment on THIS POST 

Hi everyone,
Just a quick post today...This week, CASology is celebrating their 100th Challenge, and the Cue Card is "Celebrate"! So, I couldn't resist playing along, and created this card! 


I stamped the confetti, stars and dot icons from 2 different Mama Elephant stamp sets with Hero Arts Neon inks, embossed the sentiment using black glitter embossing powder to give the card some sparkle, and mounted the panel on to a black base. I also added a touch of Wink of Stella clear glitter to icons. And, that's it...C. A. S.!!!

Before I go, I would just like to thank the past and present Design Team girls for always inspiring me to create, and for all the support they've given to all the players in their challenges...they are truly an amazing and seriously talented group...Thanks, ladies!

Well, I hope everyone is getting ready to have a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by ~
Barb

Barb, this is an awesome CAS card, lots of white space but still colorful and fun! Love that sentiment, too! Thanks for your kind words, and thanks to YOU for always playing along and encouraging the DT members, too. So glass you joined in the celebration at CASology this week!

What a darling "Celebration" card! I just love those adorable "party" decor stamps....again something new to me! I also love how you used the fun vibrant colors, a perfect touch,.

PS: I've been meaning to comment on your photos and how creative you are by adding in extra little props and elements that look so nice with your cards. I recently watched or read some great tips and hints from the amazing Debbie Hughes and her pictures are always awesome. My issue is low light ....my craft room is not a sunny room, so I have little Ott lights set up for pics, but they will never be as nice as those with natural light or creative elements, like you have been using! I need to be more creative in my photos and think I'll try your ideas! Thanks my friend and have a wonderful weekend!
