I do look in on the CASE study challenge every week, and try to play along when I can but I often struggle to find a jumping off point. I was so inspired by the card this week that I got straight into my craft room to play along immediately. http://casestudychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/case-study-challenge-89.html
I took my inspiration from the large letters and the colours but switched it up my using a plain black DL card, cutting strips of cards in the same colours as the inspiration cards die cut letter but stamping onto them with a large alphabet stamp set. I then heat embossed the "birthday" in white down the side rather than putting it into one of the letters. I like how it turned out and think it would be useful design for masculine cards.
As all the pieces of coloured card I stamped onto are from my snippets stash, I'm going to make it my entry this week into Di's "use up your stash challenge" http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/pixies-crafty-snippets-challenge-18.html Do join us in the playground and use up your stash too....
