Today I am joining in on two challenges  Casual Fridays its there 1st Birthday so had to join in and make a birthday card for all the cool people over there. Sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp. They Have a lot going on over there with prizes on facebook and all sorts of things you will have to go and check it out and join in.

At  Case study challenge they are casing  Agnieszka Malyszek. What a brilliant card really caught my eye love the bright colors with the black background.

So here is my card
I flipped it sideways just didn't seem to look right the other way.  I was really happy with the way it turned out the colors and the embossed black background really stood out. 

Ink .................................... Black, Paint Box pigment ink mixed colors
Embossing folder......... Intrinsic Couture creations 
Stamp set ....................... Happiest birthday wishes
Brayer for the colored background 

I would also like to welcome my new follower Sandy, good name there :) Hope you find something you would like to try and enjoy taking a look around my little blog.  

Have a great day 
Sandy :)


  1. Hi Sandy :)
    Superb birthday card. The inking on the sentiment is fantastic! LOOOOOVE the black embossed card base. You are right, it looks excellent tilted this way instead.

    I enjoyed the visit to your blog. Have a great day!
