CTC116 - Carousel Birthday Card

Hello & welcome back to another CASE-ing the Catty Sunday night blog hop.  This week we are CASE-ing projects from the Succulent Garden section of the Occasions Catalogue pages 20 - 31.

 I have chosen to CASE the cute succulent Mother's Day card on page 20. Whilst I love the succulents & flowers used in this card, I have been itching to ink up my Carousel Birthday stamp set.  I love the whimsical old world feel of the horse but wanted to make a cute kids card, perfect for a little girl.  I no longer have a little girl, she is a teenager now, but I think she would like this too!

Here is the card I cased.

It's quite pretty, isn't it?  It's a great layout & really versatile for any type of card.

Here is my card:

I am already mourning the loss of Watermelon Wonder, which will be leaving us in June to make way for some new In Colour loveliness.  It is my go to colour lately & it teams lovely with most colours.  I have used the stripe DSP from the Succulent Garden DSP & the sprinkles DSP from Tasty Treats DSP.

I wanted to make this card a bit more special so I embossed the sentiment from Avant Garden in Gold & added some gold accents along with a scattering of cute Sprinkles Embellishments from the Cool Treats Suite.
