Birthday - CTC#34

I decided to play along with CASE-ing the Catty blog this weekend. It's another way for me to actually use my"stuff".

The challenge for this week was BIRTHDAYS, taking our inspiration from pages 5 - 12 of the new 2015-2016 catalog. I chose the card on page 7. I love the little doughnuts. I did change up my colors and used the Fabulous Four stamp set sentiment.

Well, I have confession.  I do not own the stamp set, Sprinkles on Top. So what did this girl do? I did have the DSP stack, Cherry on Top which had doughnut paper, so I used the 3/4" punch and punched those little sweet doughnuts out. They do have more of a border then stamping and punching them, but they were close enough for me.

If you look closely, the images have a blue shading around the edge. I decided to use the Shimmery White paper as the background piece , it is not as bright as the Whisper White and that seemed  to make the blueish background not as obvious.

The twine is Hello Honey which I felt matched close enough to the Crushed Curry. The patterned paper is from the Cherry on Top DSP combined with a Crushed Curry card base.

This about it for today.  I'm off to take the pup out and clean up my Studio space. A little later this evening my granddaughter and I are going to The Olive Garden for dinner. Love the soup and salad combo!

Have a CRAFTY weekend.
