Wishing you happiness - CTD #91 & CAS-tastic #01

It's Wednesday so that means it's Color Throwdown day! It also means its CAS-tastic Challenge day, too. I'm happy to announce I was chosen for this new challenge's very first design team. You know I've been gravitating towards CAS for a while so I'm so happy to be joining this team for a 3-month term starting today! Since I have a MFT teaser yet to post and MFT blog hop tonight, I'm combining these two challenges today.

The fabulous Broni chose today's Throwdown colors:
And CAS-tastic's first challenge is to make a birthday card. Easy peasy, right?

I'm using MFT's Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays set for my sentiments--which is the only stamping on this card. My layout is Clean and Simply Fall-To Sketch #88. Really simple layout but I couldn't resist using MFT's Jumbo Scallop die for a little interest. Buttons are from MFT's Summer collection.

Here's the inside; LOVE this sentiment.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD91 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week! And welcome to our May guest designer--Laura Pryer!!!
