A CAS Birthday

Here's a quick and easy birthday card I made for Splitcoaststampers' CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge to make your own background:

Card measures 4.25" x 4.25". I made my own background by scoring a grid pattern on a 60 mm x 60 mm white panel and stamping a small fleur de lis element in each square.

This card is also my entry for City Crafter Challenge Week 45 "Nothing To It," to make a creation with nothing on it: no bows, no lace, no flowers, no buttons. I think it's easy to see that I've added nothing to this card!


Finally, I took my colors from this week's Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge (OTWC46):

Thanks for dropping by!
Emily

Card Recipe:
Paper: snowstorm CS, various CS from The Paper Company
Ink: Palette: l'amore red, paris lights, reflection blue
Accessories: scoring tool, SU small oval punch, dimensionals
Techniques: scoring
