CASology Birthday Greetings

It’s Tuesday and that means there is a new cue word up over at CASology!  This week, it’s all about the birthday!

My boys are so good at reminding me of their 1/2 birthdays!  Childhood.  Isn’t it great?!

I decided to play with the glitter dryer sheet technique a little more for my design.

I’m loving glitter lately, so I hope you don’t mind me covering another card with it!  I wanted to focus on the word happy, so made it the star of the show on this card!  Watercolor paints were used to create the rainbow background.

I hope you’ll take a little time to visit the rest of the design team members’ blogs as well as this week’s guest designer’s blog!  So talented!

Then, don’t forget to link up your very own birthday creation on the CASology blog by Monday at NOON (CDT) for you chance to win a great prize from this week’s sponsor, STAMPlorations!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Hey Melissa!! I love all of that glitter on your card. Its so pretty! I have to look into that technique, I've never heard of it. Nicely done.

    Wow, Melissa, that technique is new to me. (Ironic…I just ran out of dryer sheets today as I'm home doing mountains of laundry!) I love the pretty colorwashed background and the lovely sparkle!

    Just gorgeous. I can only imagine what your desk looked like after this. Never heard of this technique either, but it sure looks fun.
