CS190 - Happy Birthday!



This is my card for this week's CASE Study, where our inspiration once again comes from the extremely talented and creative Wida:



I focused on the stripes on the background, the floral die cut and the horizontal sentiment. Wida's strips of polka-dots behind the flower immediately made me think of Papertrey's building blocks die - I cut it out of my front panel and then turned it so I could fit my Altenew sentiment into one of the strips. I used my favourite groovy PTI flower die, sponged in warm colours of various distress inks.
