Aqua Challenge Birthday Card

Weeks and weeks ago (or is it months?) the challenge at the Less Is More blog was to create a CAS card using AQUA.

I knew just what I wanted to do, but had no time to do it that week. Or the next. But eventually I got my card made.

This, unfortunately, is NOT a mail friendly card. But I do hand-deliver some cards throughout the year, so this will be one of them.

That paper flower is soooo pretty. I found a package on clearance at Michaels a long time ago and ended up adding a few more packages to my stash the next time I visited that store. They just called to me.  One of the packages I picked up had black and white paper flowers and I used several of them on the items I made for our daughter's wedding in February!

The card is 4-1/2 x 6", and is a soft grey textured card stock. I believe Tim Holtz makes the paper tape, and the pretty word stamp is a Papertrey Ink one. Another favourite - I love this larger size! The aqua card stock is Baja Breeze (SU) - another favourite of mine.

Hope you like my - very late - card for that great challenge. Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Love this Karen, the tape is just amazing.
    It's fun to make cards with bigger embellishments on even if you do have to hand-deliver them!

  2. Oh - I do so love this card - the colors - the simplicity - such style!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read them all, and appreciate them greatly!
Have a great day,
