CAS(E) This Sketch 314 Meets Fusion

We've got some great new challenges at CAS(E) This Sketch and Fusion and as per my usual I combined them this week.  I ended up with a masculine birthday card...always a tough category for me!



I was inspired by the colors and patterns of the Fusion inspiration and I approximated the shapes of the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  I've got triangles!

This is the second iteration of this card because the first one was horrible with a capital H!  I made it over the weekend, uploaded it to the respective design team blogs and then had second and, if I'm being honest, third thoughts.  So I rushed home from work on Monday and went straight into my craft cave to make some modifications.  I hope my fellow design team members didn't see the original!  LOL! 

At Seize the Birthday they are always looking for birthday cards and each week they've got an optional "topping."  This week the topping is dots and stripes.  I'm not sure this qualifies for the topping because my dots are square!  Is there a rule that dots have to be circles?  I'm not sure!


Thanks for stopping by!  My fellow design team members at CAS(E) This Sketch and Fusion have made some GREAT cards to inspire you to play along with us.  I hope to see you one (or both!) of those galleries!

Saw this over at CTS and just knew you'd made it. What an incredible card!!!! I do love this design, and you should make about a zillion more to have on hand. This is just fantastic. That stamp is so very cool, and a great vehicle for your triangles. I absolutely love this card. You go girl!! Bev
