Spring Migration



I'm not usually much of a bingo player but I really wanted to join in with CAS-ual Fridays 2nd birthday challenge so I hemmed and hawed for a while before landing on the Birthday/Bling/Punches or Dies line.  I used the colours from The Paper Players challenge to help me along as they felt appropriately celebratory!  I used both a die and a punch here.  I layered 6 PTI Double Ended Banner dies to get a chevron look and then used a 1/8" hole punch for some confetti. Clean, crisp and ready to celebrate!  
  


Spring migration in Bermuda doesn't involve the usual suspects.  Rather than birds passing through we have boats on their way to the Caribbean!  The harbour is normally not this full so it's fun to see all the different ships and also to have St. George's (the town across the harbour) bustling with people.  Off to work now.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Sugar Rush) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Double Ended Banner) Papertrey Ink
Punch:  (1/8" hole punch) McGill
Gems:  Recollections

I think somehow I've missed the fact that you reside in (or should I say on?) Bermuda! That looks so wonderful. Like your card - saw those colors and thought "can't do that". You've done it well with so much white.

Love this card. It would work for a male or female. I never thought to layer those die cuts like that, and you just gave me another great idea about how to make confetti. Oh, and your neighborhood is beautiful!

Jen, your CAS card is so on trend and I love that it could be used for either gender. The strong colors work so well and the added bling was just perfect. of course, I love all of that lovely white space! So glad you joined the Paper Players this week and thank you for rocking my challenge.

Wow, this is such a cool concept...I love how you layered these banners! And the confetti is an extra-fun touch! Wow, I'd better not let DH see your harbor pix....he'll be wanting to move to Bermuda (not such a bad idea, though!)! Thanks so much for participating in our challenge this week!
