CASE Study: Happy Birthday

Hi Everyone!

Well, let me just start out by saying that this picture is about the 10th one I tried to take of this card. I just couldn't get it to come out the way I wanted it to. Trust me, believe me when I tell you that yellow background is NOT that bright! UGH!! It's actually a darker and more mustard/curry looking. I don't know why on earth I couldn't get it to photograph the way I wanted it to.
Ok, well it is what it is, I suppose. And what this is, is my version of this week's CASE Study Card.  I wanted to make a birthday card and I really wanted to make one that could be given to a little boy. I don't make a lot of kid friendly cards, and I definitely don't make nearly enough boy cards. I tried also to find as many colors as I could for this week's Color Throwdown challenge. I used stamps from Hero Arts "Year Round Sentiments" and Verve's "Tag Time"
I made my card a standard sized card instead of a skinny one; but I try to keep the basic layout and tried to pull some of the similar colors from the CASE card.

Ok, that's it for me today! Enjoy your evening and I'll see you all soon!

This turned out fantastic! I have the hardest time with "boy cards" too... this is perfect for anyone but definitely for a boy of any age. Nice work!
