How I made my card:

1. I took my damask stencil and I sponged with clear ink, and then gave Black embossing powder on it. Then embossed it with heat tool.

2. Cut a gold paper and put that strip under the damask embossed area. (to cover my smudge *grinz*)

3. After that I stamped my Favorite Sentiment Happy Birthday and gave some peel off gold sticker. It was so easy and fast to made.

Challenges for my card are:

Freshly Made Sketches #200: see above

Seize The Birthday: Anything Goes Birthday

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 323: GLAM

Sister Act Challenge #120: Anything Goes


I have seen this lovely card from Shona my friend and I cant wait to make a card using this challenge at TIME OUT.

This is not my card but Shona C.card

Also I got inspiration from her lovely and so graphic card(thanks sweet Shona for the inspiration)....I follow her step to sponged the striped stencil. Because I dont have a dark blue ink, this is the only one I have and for stamping any images, it is not so solid ink. Also better sponged it on a white paper.

Then I choose Lawn Fawn Stamp set and stamped on the Tag I have cut with TAG DIE´s.

I stamped the "lifesaver" two times one in black and one in red. Fussy Cut the red part and use double tape foam adhere on the top of the black one. The Sentiment is from the same set. I made a bit smudge under the sentiment also I took the wave stamp from the same set and stamped with the same blue ink.

I hope you like this card like I love this simple and easy look CAS card.
