CFC51 - Happy 1st Birthday!

The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog is celebrating its 1st birthday!


Thankfully more time was given to submit for the challenge and I'm squeaking in my entry in the nick of time!


After embossing this fun image from Hero Arts G5596 For You Gifts I did a combination of coloring and paper piecing.  Papertrey ink's Background Basics Gingham was stamped with Hero Arts Green Hills shadow ink to create the "grass".  The "sun" was created by sponging Hero Arts Butter Bar shadow ink in the negative piece of a circle die cut.  The "rays" of the sun are actually the birthday cake candle from Hero Arts CL576 Wish Big set.  Sentiment is from that same set.  Finally, Hero Arts CG422 Zig Zag was white embossed on the base card.
Other Materials Used:  Hero Arts snow layering paper, My Mind's Eye pp, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder, Ranger stickles, Copic markers

Hope your week is going well and thanks for all the sweet comments!
