Sponge(d) cake

You can never have enough birthday cards around, can you? Here's CAS one I made.

To create the design on the base card, I sponged the circles using a stencil I have. Unfortunately, I noticed after I'd done the sponging that the last row of dots on the stencil is not evenly spaced. Not happy about that, but I guess it's proof it's handmade.  The colors are SU Cameo Coral and Night of Navy, and Memories Soft Leaf (a shadow ink). 

The image is from Impression Obsession, also stamped in navy. The coral strip is embossed with the Swiss dot folder.

The sketch is from Retro Sketches, #53.  The sponging counts as creating wallpaper for CAS-ual Fridays, CFC92.  And a couple challenges are for birthday cards: CAS on Sunday #3, birthday card, and 365 Cards Day 63, birthday cake.


  1. Such a pretty card! What a great idea to use a mask to create the circle background!
    Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. Great card, Sandy! Love that you sponged your own background instead of stamped it. It give a fun feeling to your birthday card. Thanks so much for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

  3. Beautiful card, Sandy. Great colours.
    Thank you for joining us at CAS on Sunday. Luv, Wilma

  4. I am so glad you played along with us at CAS on Sunday! The dots in the background were a great idea!
