CASology #2


Hello and thank you so much to everyone who participated in our first challenge at CASology!  We had a fantastic response - 86 entries! - and I had a ball looking through them all.  :)  


Here's the Cue Card for this week:




The word Happy reminded me of this PTI die and for some reason I always envision it in red.  I went with a bright and cheery primary colour palette and added some gems and a decorative edge for interest.  Have a look at how it inspired the rest of the DT girls:




And how does the word "Happy" inspire you?  I can't wait to see your take on it!  Link up your creations at the CASology blog and remember that submissions are due by Sunday, 22 July at noon CST. 



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, yellow) Bazzill, (Real Red, Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Think big Favourites #12) PTI
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Seeing Stars, Wonderful Words) PTI
Punch:  (Threading Water) Fiskars
Gems:  (Ladybug & Denim assortments) Doodlebug
