Strawberry Cake Birthday

Here is my card for this week's challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches where Jane, our hostess for March, has picked three yummy colours for us, don't you just love them? Flowers or food, I thought, knowing me you'd be right if you said food, every time!

I decided to team up Big Day with Gorgeous Grunge . I stamped through an aperture to create the background for the sentiment. I've seen a few cards done this way and it always catches my eye.

I used Strawberry Slush card to make the sentiment stand out more and even had a small go with my marker pens to continue the colours onto the sentiment.

A small punchd paper flower with a central gem just added a bit of pizazz! I'm going to enter the challenge at Seize The Birthdaywhere the sentiment is the focal point.


  1. So not flowers, but a food sentiment - love that!

  2. Great sentiment and a lovely card Louise. Thank you for the kind comments you left about my post. Must get myself an ink pad and some card in that colour! Stef x

  3. Love your fun background and colors! Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday!

  4. The splotches make a great background for the big, bold sentiment label. I like this! :)

  5. Super background and wonderful job making the sentiment your focus! Thanks for joining us over at Seize the Birthday...we sure do appreciate it!

  6. Cake is one of the best ways to celebrate the day! Love the bright colours and the grunge background. Thanks so much for joining us at Seize The Birthday :)
