Rainbow Birthdays


Welcome back my friends ... I hope today finds you well & happy!

I've really been having fun working at getting better with the CAS (clean & simple) design style and with some of the fun & amazing challenge blogs out there to help me with inspiration, I think I'm finally 'getting the hang of it'.

Today's card was created for the new challenge over on the AAA Cards Blog ... here's their challenge this time around . . .


 Their design team shared some amazing inspiration cards ... using the same style but all so different!!!   By simply using a panel of masking medium and the left over ink in some of my TH distress oxide ink large sponges, I created my rainbow effect at the bottom of my card front.   Once I pulled away the masking,  I realized I could have come up on my card a little further with my colors.  So I decided to add the coordinating colors using Nuvo Crystal Drops in the top corner to pull it all together.  

Thanks so much for taking the time out of you day to stop by and take a peek.  It means more to me than you will ever know!   Please be safe out there ... wear your mask ... and stay healthy!

As always . . .
