Birthday Blossoms CTC#35


Welcome back to the CASE-ing The Catty Blog Hop and this week we are CASE-ing pages 13-18, the 'Thanks' section of the catalogue. Have you begun here, or did you come from Alison's blog? Either way, continue hopping from blog to blog until you have visited all and reach your starting point. We love to have you visit.

I flipped through to page 18, where there is a very simple card, Quick & Easy, the label says and it definitely is that. It was a day when I was playing with Birthday Blossoms though, and I always need heaps of birthday cards, so I skipped the thanks this time and went straight to happy birthday. With the Color Coach dropped from the catalogue, I had to dream up my own combination, and chose Soft Sky and Mint Macaron, both soft, sweet shades. Birthday Blossoms is a great stamp set with the cluster of flowers, a single flower which can be punched with the Pansy Punch, some leaves and five sentiments, several of them quite different from recent ones. The flowers seem a little too subtle, but we don't seem to have a blue between Soft Sky and Marina Mist for intensity.

Now, it would be so easy for me to step-it-up, but it has been pointed out to me that plenty of people like quick and easy too, so that is what I have gone with today.

Thanks for visiting my blog, I'd love you to say hi in the comments before you pop over to see what  Stasia at Stampin' & Scrappin' With Stasia has in store for you. I have to say, I love her card.

Cheers,
Rachel
