CASology Week 2: HAPPY

I am absolutely amazed at how many people posted entries for Week #1 over at CASology! When I set up the challenge, I never in my wildest dreams thought it would take off with such a roaring start! To say the least, I am so happy!!! This week, we are moving on to a new cue word:

I originally thought of a smiley face since I adore smiley faces, putting them on most every note or letter I write!  However, as much as I wanted to, I didn’t end up with a smiley face card at all!  Instead, I created a very simple birthday card consisting of a little glittered birthday hat!

 I popped up the hat with a portion of a foam dot to give my card a little dimension and then colored the sentiment with coordinating colors.

The design team has some wonderful cards to share this week too, so be sure to visit their blogs if you have the time!

Hope to see you at CASology this week!
