CCC #041: Card Challenge - Happy 1st Birthday CCC !!!

Hey Stampers,

I can’t BELIEVE that Catherine and Cathy Create is a year old!! When Cathy and I first had the idea for this challenge blog, we had no idea that we would have such a fun time running it! We have made some great friends from the amazing talent on our Design Team and feel so fortunate to have all of YOU guys follow us and play along every month! A big thanks to you !!

So our Cards Challenge for August is Birthday Cards to celebrate! Take a look at the card I made!

This card is one I made for my Grandmother for her birthday. I got the fun idea from a card in the Hostess section of the Annual Catty. I LOVE the Bloom With Hope hostess set, and I think the card that I got my idea from really sold it for me! I did change it up a bit though!

As you know, I LOVE Gold - so I used some Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum for my background layer, along with some of the Gold Bakers Twine for some sophisticated bling. I am still getting the hang of the Blendabilities, but I love how these flowers turned out! The Wisteria Wonder marker trio is so rich looking, don’t you think??

I love using my framelits in different ways, so my stamped layer here is actually the Window Frames framelits, with 2 of the bumps from the sides trimmed off. Makes a while new shape! Love it!!

Well thats it for me today! Please come by to Catherine and Cathy Create and play along with us! We would love to have you. Thanks so much for dropping by and Happy Stamping!!
