How many candles?

If you follow my blog you will know that CAS is my preferred style and so I'm so happy that CAS Colours & Sketches is back with a brand new set of colour and sketch challenges for you. We start with a sketch, from this month's hostess, Jacqueline.

We always say that we have to be able to see the elements of the sketch in your card. On my card I have swapped the oval for a cupcake and placed it over to the right of the banner panel. The sentiment has taken over a larger area and everything 'slipped' to the bottom. Apart from that, it's identical!!

Two photographs, I am always challenged to produce good photos  of white cards, the light is never right. Each candle and flame was punched out using the Cupcake Builder punch and carefully added to the base white card stock, my colour combo is Lost Lagoon and real red and I used some naturals Ivory card to punch out the icing/ frosting part of the cake.

I used foam pads to add the cupcake to give some dimension to my card.
The sentiment which I stamped inside is just perfect.


  1. I love this - I miss this set so much, especially that sentiment! - J xx

  2. I love the colors you used, Louise. And oh my goodness - you punched the candles AND the flames?!? I don't think I'd have the patience to adhere them all as nicely as you did!

  3. A lovely card all the hand punched candles!

  4. Your card is a beauty. Loving the perfect placement of all your elements. I'm so lucky to on a team with you!

  5. Really love your card Louise. It must have taken ages to place all those separate candles and flames just right! Thank you so much for the lovely comments you left on my first DT post. So glad to be part of the team. Stef x
