One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

CAS-ual Fridays and Seize the Birthday

I don't do this very often because I have trouble doing more than one challenge at a time, but this just worked out to use the sketch from Seize the Birthday - masculine card and CAS-ual Fridays, wallpaper...stamp your own background!   I used a mask for the circle, then using a pen made my dash lines around it so it would stand out a little better.  With the mask in place, I then stamped my gift boxes.  I used the same nestabilities die to cut the end of my banner so it would match up with the circle.

Paper:  PTI
Stamps:  PTI Make a Wish, CAS-ual Fridays sentiment
Ink:  blueberry sky, harvest gold, ripe avocado, ocean tides
        AND
