  1. I love the bold look of your card especially the little row of Crushed Curry dots. They just pop right out! I also love the use of the bow. So clever, Alison!

  2. I love your card! Your mix of patterns and solids is so happy and festive and that striped bow is a perfect finish!! It's just TOO cute!!

  3. A great take on both challenges! I just typed that bow is too cute but looked up and saw that Margaret said the same thing! haha! Well it is what it is and that is cute!

  4. Yes, that little bow really makes the card special! Love how it looks with the striped paper - just the perfect touch for this CAS birthday card! Great card!

  5. I love the graphic mix of designer papers! This is such a cool CAS card!

  6. Love it! Super simple, but so much fun! Sometimes working with three colors is too much and I love how you tucked the third color in by adding the candy dots.

  7. Oh my ♥ loves this clean lines!
    Thanks for joining us at Seize the birthday !

  8. LOVE the bow on here...just adds the perfect touch to your CAS card! Great job with the color challenge this week!

  9. I love how we used the same sketch for our cards this week yet they look so different! The bow adds a real touch of chic elegance to your CAS birthday card - gorgeous!

  10. Love the touch of yellow with the red/black combo! Thanks so much for playing at Seize The Birthday :)
