CASE Study 189 - Happy 40th Birthday!


Another morning of inspiration! As I was scrolling through my reader, I came across this pretty card by this month's CASE Study Muse, Wida:



My friend asked me to make a 40th birthday card for her friend, so I used the 40 as the repeating motif on the background. I put my colour on the inside of the frame and punched up the size of the sentiment.

Brilliant take on Wida's card! Love that you've used "40" as the background...how do you always get things like this soooo straight?! Perfectly happy colors for the 'Happy', too. Great card! Love this! Bev : )

Awesome design! The colorful happy is beautifully intensified by the black and white background.

I love that the "happy" is so colorful and the 40 takes a backseat.

I 'vaguely' remember 40....50 is already a blur....

Awesome job stamping all those 4's and 0's!!! Great pop of color & sparkle for the focal point! Another super duper "Ardyth creation" :)

LOVE those shimmery colours in the (die cut?) happy, Ardyth ... they're so perfect against the 'light touch' black and perfectly stamped 40s! Cool off-setting of the sentiment panel! Anita :)

Super way to make a number themed birthday card. Love the multi colored 'happy'.

I had totally forgotten about chalks. You have used them perfectly here. Your bulb truly looks like it is glowing.

Such a great card! The black 40's with the wonderful, colorful sentiment are just PERFECT!

The shimmer on happy is so amazing, like how you kept the BG black n white and brought all the colors in the forefront :)
