Post 100: Paper Players 226

The hundredth post seems quite a milestone and it's fitting that Post 100 of this blog is for the Paper Players, as the very first time I ever got a card picked was for  Cut Above at Paper Players challenge 210 in August last year. As it was only the fourth card I'd ever entered in a challenge anywhere, it felt pretty special.

This week, the challenge is to create a CAS card where the sentiment is the focal point.

 The underneath 'happy' is in Night of Navy and offset with the Calypso Coral to create a shadow effect. The 'birthday' is from Altenew Label Love set, which was one of the first things I bought from USA when I discovered internet shopping. I used Gorgeous Grunge and the rain splats from French Foliage in Calypso Coral and Marina Mist to create the ground. I was looking for a kind of fireworks/happy explosion effect. 

I'm pretty happy with the overall result - it looks celebratory but also looks very clean.

Card: Whisper White, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Calypso Coral
Stamps: SU Gorgeous Grunge, SU French Foliage, Altenew Label Love
Ink: Calypso Coral, Night of Navy, Marina Mist
Other: Die-namics Happy Birthday
