CAS-ual Fridays #51


Hello! Welcome to CAS-ual Friday's Challenge! Time flies when you are having fun! I can't believe this is the 51st challenge already! I have thoroughly enjoyed this design team and really felt so blessed to be part of it! It has been a year since I am on this design team and I have decided to stay for another 6 months (yay, go me!!)! We have new and amazing design team members starting this week!  Please be sure to check them out over here.
Sponsor: 
 Simon Says Stamp
 Exciting changes:
 ~NEW Facebook design team (see here ) and there will be DT cards made specifically for the inspiration and your view pleasure.
~PRIZES! How can we miss party favors and prizes? There will be LOTS! Details are here 
~Longer play time! The deadline is now extended to Thursday ( NOON, Eastern Time). 

 This being the first challenge in May, we are in search of a guest design Girl Fridays
Theme: Any birthday-themed CAS project 

For this challenge, I made an (almost) one layer card.  And I can tell you that this card's inspiration came from the previous Moxie Fab World's blog banners. Not sure if I do it justice, but it sure was fun to create with colors and masking.
 Happy birthday

Hope you can join the fun with us at CAS-ual Fridays.  Please link up your project by May 10 Thursday, noon Eastern Time and do check out the prizes that are generously provided by Simon Says Stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by!

monika said...

thanks a lot for your really nice comment and feedback :-)

ja bis gleich! :-)

the circle of butterflies are not alone => you hold them with the one butterfly top right and with a butterfly and flower bottom left and this is the "wow" effect for me.

I just love this!
