~* Happy Birthday, CCCB :)!!! *~

Hi Everyone!

I know, it's been awhile! I've been completely swamped...didn't even have any time to blog surf or craft :(. Glad I got to make this card to help celebrate the City Crafter Challenge Blog's first birthday! Happy Happy Birthday, CCCB! Love the ladies and their wonderful creations and love their sweet words of support!

The challenge for CCCB Week 52 ~ Happy Birthday!!!!! was to case Silvia's pretty cake CASE card (right above). I decided to case the following:

1. dry embossing white card stock base

2. pinkish coral color

3. pearls

4. Happy Birthday banner

5. flowers

6. and it's a birthday card :)

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that things slow down so I can come visit you all and say hi! I missed you all a lot! Thank you for those who have checked in on me. You're the sweetest!

*hugs* and Much aloha to you~

Steph :)

Love your "cased" card, pretty and sweet with the elements from Sylvia's card but yet it has that total different feel, brilliant!
Thanks for celebrating our 1st birthday with us at CCCB!
