CAS card: Happy Birthday

Hi folks!!

This is the third cas card I made today using some never-before-used-supplies. I'm new to coloring and shading and I think I love it !! it is such a fun activity :) out of all three cards, the coloring came out the best in this one. I also like the ombre look of the die cut sentiment :) I have to say this little image of the critter with the balloons is adorable and I felt like making lots of stuff using this. The funny thing is that I forgot to stamp on water color paper and used regular thick cardstock for all three cards (I stamped first and did the coloring later) but the coloring went on fine without tearing the paper which was a relief! (The balloons have a shimmer to them because I applied clear wink of stella at the end but sadly the pictures don't pick up the shine )

Here are a few images of the finished card:

Supplies Used:

1. Iris cardstock 250 gsm
2. Riley Rubber Stamps- balloons 
3. Sizzix tim holtz celebration script words die

I am playing along with the following challenges:

1. NBUS challenge #10 (The NBUS supplies include the two new colors of tim holtz mini inkpads that I added to my stash recently-broken china and chipped sapphire and also the silver stickles used to dot the one sequin on top of "i" )


  1. What an adorable card! That deer looks so cute with the balloons and I love your ombre colored sentiment!

  4. CAS perfection! The cross stitch border is a lovely detail, but of course the star of the show is that cute moose floating away with those fun balloons... fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us again at Less is More :)

  5. That moose really is cute and I love the ombre blue shading. For info, I find the best cardstock for Zigs is the Strathmore Bristol smooth card. They blend like a dream with water :)
