CAS Happy Birthday

I went into the craft room to do the Play Date Cafe challenge, but ended up doing two others. I have no focus.

Here's my card, then I'll explain:

LOTS of white space, I know. I'm kinda twitchy.

This combines the CAS(E) This Sketch! challenge:

and the OWH Mid-week Throwdown challenge:

I used the top row of Brads, Border punch and Ribbon.

One more time so you can remember what the card looks like:

I used a never-before-opened EK Success punch on a piece of pretty paper from The Heaplet. I wove a piece of SU Marina Mist taffeta ribbon through the top of it, then added the sentiment banner and secured it with two gold brads.

I have another piece of the punched border, so I'll see what else I can cook up. And eventually I hope to get to the PDCC challenge.

Whoa, this card also qualifies for this week's SOS challenge to use a border punch. I can't play, but you totally should. :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Gorgeous! Love the ribbon through the die cut. P.S. Focus - smocus! Who needs it when you have as many amazing ideas as you do? :-D

  2. Oh, how clever to weave the ribbon through like that! I love the texture it gives! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  3. I love the ribbon weaving idea. The white space is fine, stop twitching :-)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
