The Card Concept #78

Hello Everyone! It's time for another Card Concept challenge. This time I've gone completely the other way and chosen CAS as my card design.

When I saw all those pretty pastels, I felt it needed something simple.

I have to say these challenges are making me revisit a lot of older stamp sets and supplies. This is a set from Sugar Pea Designs that I got last year and have only inked up a couple of times, but I saw Laurie use it recently and it reminded me why it is so great. I also got out my Versa Magic Chalk inks because they give such a soft pastel look. 

This is a one layer card and I inked up the different cake elements in different colours using my Precision Press - a stamping tool really does help with lining it up. My only issue with this stamp set is that if you want a candle on the top, it either has to be wonky (safety!!!!) or you have to mask slightly when you stamp and I was too lazy.

So simple! I hope you feel inspired to join in this  month, I know I'm enjoying these challenges immensely. Thank you for visiting me today, Happy Crafting!

Pretty pastels! a lovely CAS card and this image would be great for masculine cards too! You did make me laugh with the masking... and I wouldn't have noticed the candle unless you pointed it out! Always good to get some use out of your inks too :-) xx
