Wish Big!

Good Morning all!!  I Hope your week is shaping up nicely!! 

I am going to TRY and make this a quick post... I have a lot of things to get caught up since yesterday seemed to be big blur of birthday partying, vet visitng and blog hopping that kept me from getting some much needed work done!  I hope to be a card-producing fool today!!  :-)

Today the Spotlight is on CAS Cards and Whimsie Doodles

Every Monday a new Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge is posted on the SCS Forum HERE .  Yesterday was the first day that one of my cards was featured as a new DT member.  It was so exciting.  I received so many wonderful comments on my card and I really appreciate that.  I hope to get into the Gallery  today to leave some love back for you guys!!  What I have seen so far looks amazing!!

The card that I made followed the challenge prompt that Jen (Miss Boo on SCS) gave us, which was to make a square card (SC56).  And it also followed a challenge given by Saturday Spotlight which was to "Clean it Up" and make a CAS style card.  Whimsie Doodles, my favorite digistamp company happens to be sponsoring the Saturday Spotlight challenge this week.  So if you want a chance at winning a $10 shopping spree from Whimsie Doodles then make a CAS and submit it to Saturday Spotlight for a chance to win.

To make this card I printed the elephant from Whimsie Doodles  Elephant Shoes digi after covering up the sentiment that came with it and replacing it with the one that you see here.  I needed to alter it so that it could be used for a birthday card instead of a Valentine!! 

See how versatile these stamps can be??  I Love that!!

I used just a small strip of the Cosmo Cricket paper which led me to the place where I knew I would pop the red with my Copics and accent CS.  And then I added the two brads to add the teal color and complement the circles in the DP.  The finished card is 4 x 4 inches square!  To give the balloon the "see through" appearance in the middle, I used the colorless blender to carefully remove some of the red coloring!

I am signing off for today and will be back tomorrow with some more creations!!  Have a wonderful day and may your bucket be overflowing with big wishes that all come true for you!
