Card #1 is for CAS(E) this sketch.
I went back to my Fabulous Finds cartridge (I think I called it Fantastic Finds the other day, the name of a consignment shop I used to frequent). I cut out these cute charms and embellished them with a pearl, glossy accents and a glitter paint I've had forever. The chain is a die from poppystamps and the paper from Authentique. I have to say I learned my lesson on this one. I know to stamp first and add the paper later, just in case. Well I didn't do that and the "just in case" happened. The stamp smeared. I had to gently peel the charms off, which had been stuck down with glue dots. They survived but the chain broke and the paper strip wouldn't come off but those were easily replaceable. I didn't want to have to redo the charms, too. I ended up printing the sentiment with the computer to avoid any other mishaps.
Card #2 is for CASE Study.
Isn't this a happy little card? - no pun intended. The candles are cut from Straight from the Nest in a striped scrap. The flames are a glitter paper. I printed the "birthday" on the computer BEFORE adding the candles and word. See, I said I learned my lesson. ;)
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and maybe I'll see you back here tomorrow.
