CAS Fireworks

Hello Everyone,

For today I am going to playing along with AAA Cards and CAS(E) this Sketch. I really liked the layout and thought it had a lot of possibilities. There are many options, and this is what I settled on, enjoy!

Black space has replaced white space for this CAS celebration card.
I thought I would keep the sidebar clean and simple by
adding the same black that is used for the main panel.

I stamped the fireworks at different angles to make it seem like a random pattern.
I stamped the fireworks using ColorBox- Frost White pigment ink.
Whether it mattered or not, I thought I would get a better heat embossed image.

Lots of sparkle and shimmer really makes this card festive.

Challenges Entered:
CAS(E) this Sketch: CTS#224
AAA Cards: CAS Game #91- The 3rd Big Birthday Bash

  


It is my cousin's birthday on the Fourth of July (USA's independence day). I don't know if I would want to compete with a holiday as my birthday. I happen to be lucky, my birthday is in August and here in the USA there are no holidays. 😁 If I had to share a holiday with my birthday than the Fourth of July would be perfect!! Fireworks that boom and bang, BBQ's that always bring amazing potluck food, friends, and family all get together to share in your joy. Yeah, the 4th is the way to go for a birthday.

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,
Shawna
