Krafty Birthday


I almost enjoyed last week's CAS(E) This Sketch, so I thought I'd give it another go this week.


The challenge at CASE Study is to case this card from October muse, Julia Stainton:

The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to create a clean and simple project using Kraft.


The colours at The Play Date Cafe work with all of the above challenges (although my green looks more blue, thanks to the wonders of modern photography):


That's it for the challenges, but over at Virginia's blog, she's organised a birthday blog-hop for Barb Engler, with the opportunity to link a virtual birthday card.  Barb is one of the most prolific contributors of cards to Hero Arts Flickr Group and if you've ever uploaded a card to Hero Arts' Flickr Group, you will almost certainly have had an encouraging comment from Barb.  So this card is also for Barb, Happy Birthday!
