Krafty Birthday

It's challenge day with the designers over at Lizzie Anne Designs, and this month we had a super fun one! We were challenged to choose another designer's card from the Sketchbook, and make a card based on it. After days and days and days of pouring over the gallery, drooling over samples, I finally settled on this one, Kraft/Black Bonjour, by Rose Ann Reynolds. What drew me to it was the great color scheme, and how simple and elegant it was.

To make the card my own, I used the Vintage Birthday set. I stamped two different sentiments to make by background (before stamping them, I stamped them once on scratch paper to lessen how dark the ink would be on the Kraft card stock. I fussy cut my balloon and adhered it with pop-dots. For the main sentiment, I trimmed the black mat and scored it on either side, to make a banner that sits up off the card.  I happened to have the same ribbon that Rose Ann used, but I tied mine horizontally instead of vertically.

Be sure to head over to the Lizzie Anne Designs blog today, to see what the other amazing Rockstars came up with!

Love that kraft and black combo. I seriously need to go buy more kraft cardstock. Love the background with the popped up balloon in front. Love how you CASE'd Rose Ann's card.

I am so honored to have you CASE my card, Taylor!! This turned out beautifully with the images you've chosen, and I love your wonderful dimension!!

Soooo good! Such a great CASE and I really like the way you layered the image. I think I may have to CASE this myself because it is the perfect way to create a "guy" card.
