CAS Birthday Card for the UDI Color Challenge Tuesday!


Bring on the Cake!  It’s another color challenge from the Utah Divas International Design Team!  Today’s color challenge features card stock in cool colors:  Concord Crush, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla and Perfect Plum.  I chose to add the rock ‘n roll technique along with the Bliss and (you guessed it…) Bring on the Cake Stamp Sets from the Occasions Mini and upcoming Sale-a-Bration Mini Catalogs.

Rhinestone Jewels along the open scallop border edge, and Dazzling Diamonds add just a little bling to this clean and simple birthday card.  The double loop bow was tied on my fingers!

We practiced the double loop bow finger tying method last month at my down-line team training meeting.  One of my down-line team members, Debbie came up with a great solution for those with shorter fingers!  Instead of using just two fingers to tie the bow, use four… and wrap the tail through the V formed in the center of all four fingers!!  Check out the Double Loop Bow tutorial if it’s clear as mud, you’ll get the picture!

The UDI color challenges are always interesting… today’s colors are some of my favorite, and this CAS card came together quite quickly!  Hope you’ll play along with the team this week… here’s the beautiful inspiration floral arrangement photo… what’s not to love?UDI_18
