Happy Birthday Sweet Stampin' !!!!

Yay, Sweet Stampin' is turning 5 and we're celebrating it this week!!! Join us with a Birthday card and you'll have a chance to win a prize from Wild Orchid Crafts, Crafty Devils or Marianne Designs. Isn't that something?! Check our blog for details and to see the teams fabulous cards.

I played with my new favourite clear stamps, Paperbabe stamps, a challenge win. The stamps give a fabby clean impression, but hey ho, the card became so CAS that it feels a bit empty, could it work as a male card?

Challenges:
CASology: Flags ( colours of my flag, Blue and White for Finland)
Fab'n' Funky: Happy Birthday

Material:
Paperbabe Stamps, DQWV metallic paper, black Archival ink,  extra fine embossing powder for sentiment, 3D squares, book page, Distress inks.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! And a warm welcome to new followers, glad you're here! So do you have some special weekend plans? I'll have a cupcake with my midmorning tea to celebrate Sweet Stampin', perfect to keep the all day november dusk away. 
Love and hugs
Maarit


I went a bit further and added a bit more details.

  3. It's fabulous Maarit. I love CAS cards, the first version would be suitable for anyone, male or female! The second is a bit more feminine, can't decide which I prefer it's lovely either way!
