AAA Cards Game 3 - Happy Birthday!




I'm trying to get better at playing in all the amazing challenges out there - here's another new one called AAA Cards. They're on Game 3 already, so I'm a little slow in finding them, but I'm glad I did. This week our inspiration is this fun birthday card from Linda Beesom




I focused on the colours, but went a little more clean and graphic. A great way to CASify something is to make it big. (another way is to make it small, but that's a tip for another day! lol!) I used an unknown little Happy that I love because it fits right along the B of this Uniko Birthday along with the biggest dot from Simon Says Stamp's Lots of Dots.

ETA - thanks for the reminder, Donna - I'm on the DT at CAS-ual Fridays, where the challenge is Three -thirds - use 3 things on one-third of the card. I used 3 colours (plus black), 3 dots, 3 stamps (dot, happy & birthday). I'll link up there, too - don't forget that the deadline is fast approaching - May 23!
