Stampin' Up! Shaded Summer ~ Casually Crafting Blog Hop

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

This month we are doing a tic tac toe challenge.  Have you seen these before?  Pick a row, in any direction, and use those three prompts somewhere on your card.  I chose the third row going down ~ twine, happy and green.   

I've been using Shaded Summer stamps all week, so continued with that stamp set for this challenge, also!  For the green in my card, I chose to use a Parakeet Party piece of Awash in Beauty DSP for my background, plus Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves on my flower.  The Gray Granite twine is from Baker's Twine Essentials Pack. Of course, I used the 'happy birthday' stamp for the 'happy' part of my card!

I say it a lot with this stamp set, because it's so true ~ I love coloring directly on this floral stamp with my Stampin' Write Markers before stamping.  For this card, I used Rich Razzleberry for the flowers.

To get the banner shape, I measured up 3/4" from the bottom of the Basic White Cardstock, then found the middle (horizontally ~ 3/8") and made a tiny pencil mark.  I then used the Paper Trimmer to cut from each corner to the pencil mark.
