CAS64 ~ Happy Birthday Ms. Boo

Today's CAS challenge is to create a birthday card using orange. Yep you read that correctly -- ORANGE -- not my fav. Today is Jen's (aka Ms. Boo) birthday, and her favorite color is orange. Well orange can't be all that bad, 'cuz Jen is such a sweetie. So this one's for you Ms. Boo.


I do have to say that pumpkin pie is difficult to photograph. The white background kept turning grey-blue. I hope you can see this OK -- I took about 20 pictures, and this was the only one that was half way decent.

I think I saw something like this in one of my Paper Craft magazines, but I can't find the page. So this is probably a CASE, but I am not sure. I stamped the big flower and leaf outline from the Flower Fancy stamp set with pumpkin pie on pumpkin pie. I colored the center dots in with my white gel pen. I added one of my Earth Elements buttons to the sentiment. Never thought I would use the pumpkin ones -- so thanks to Jen for the challenge :o).

Thanks for stopping by!!

So pretty, I luv what you did with the sentiment Corie! The pumpkin pie gives it a little softer look, great job!

Very nicely done, Corie! That tone-on-tone stamping is such a nice touch for CAS style! I hate it too, when I have trouble photographing certain colors!!! Looks good from here.

Hi Corie,

I must tell you that I've been a long time fan of how you decorate the inside of the card as well to match the outside. I'm usually so focused on the front that I forget about a layout design for the inside.

Hugs,
Gina
