Happy Birthday Sandie!


Hello there...I'm back to preview two new sets from CAS-ual Fridays today, but before I get to showing you those sets...I need to stop and wish my dear cousin, Sandie, a happy, happy birthday!  I've posted this card last week so hopefully it has arrived and she is celebrating big for her day.  I'm sending her lots of love for a fabulous year!  Be sure to pop on over to her blog to check out her gorgeous creations!

This card was made using CAS-ual Elegance stamps.

Now, I have two new background stamp sets to share with you.  I love background stamps.  The first set is Houndstooth.  I also love stamping gradient backgrounds.  I also had fun adding different types of textured elements...cork, twine (inspired by this twine flower on Pinterest) and a touch of burlap ribbon.  I finished the card off with a sentiment from Frankly Dear.
For my second card, I used the Zigs & Zags sets...so many fun chevron patterns on this set.   This is a perfect card for one of my nieces.  Nice and girly!  The sentiment is from Mums the Word set.


Be sure to pop on over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog to check out the rest of the design team's creations and the chance to win CAS-ual Fridays goodies!
