Carousel Birthday for #GDP080

Ah the weekend, time to catch breath from a busy week AND catch on some much missed crafting! To kick start my creating I checked out this weeks challenge at the Global Design Project.... yay CASE Louise Sharp!


I adore Louise's creations, so what a honour to CASE her work - we are also fellow lovers of PINK. Here is what I was inspired to create from Louise's gorgeous card


One of the things I noticed was the tiny layer around the edge of the DSP, I wanted to give that a go - I've cut my DSP 1 mm smaller than the Calypso Coral layer. Love the effect, it is subtle yet makes the DSP really pop.


I broke out the Carousel Birthday stamp set, and stamped onto Very Vanilla using Early Espresso for a vintage feel to match the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP. I coloured using Aqua Painters. I do like layers, so I decided to cut the pony and mount on a Banner. The Triple Banner punch is great for creating banners, I spritzed the Banner using the Aqua Painter to create random dots, and for a little bling added Copper Metallic Thread to the top of the post and mounted with a dimensional on the banner.



I did some masking to create the Birthday folded banner, and the "happy" was stamped using the Crazy about You stamp set. I was on a roll, no stopping me, I also stamped the inside of the card!
