CASE-ing the Catty Beautiful Bouquet - #CTC132

Welcome to the second week of the CASE-ing the Catty utilising the new Annual Catalogue, unfortunately Australia Post could not deliver my Big Brown Box in time for this week, but I did get this set as my reward for Sale-A-Bration promotion earlier in the year.

You may be starting here so welcome or you may have come from Krissy Buck.

One of my Card Class ladies was celebrating her 80th Birthday yesterday, so I decide to make her card inspired by the layout of the card on the left (page 74 of the Annual Catalogue).  

I was inspired by the birthday badge and I wanted to make a centre feature of the 80. I started with a base of Fresh Fig and then stamped on a piece of Powder Pink with the small flowers and then layered on 2 circles.  I finished the card off with flowers on the diagonal sides and finished it off with some ribbon and sequin trim (sorry I had to used the retired trim).

I had a couple of flowers left so I then decided to decorate the inside of the card with one of my favourite sentiments from the Special Celebrations set.

Stamp Set:  Beautiful Bouquet, Special Celebrations
Cardstock:  Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Tranquil Tide
Accessories:  Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, Bouquet Bunch Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layer Circle Framelits, Tranquil Tide 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon, Gold Sequin Trim (retired), Circle Punch
