Starry Congrats

** This is my 2nd post for the day.  For my CASology post please scroll down or 



Did you see that this month's muse at CASE Study is Donna Mikasa?  She's a super talented CAS designer who rocks bright and cheery pops of colour.  This week we're to CASE her sweet thank you card.  I immediately thought of this star from Fresh Squeezed Stamps and wanted to use my Hero Arts inks.  I'm really digging the fun colours!  I think I may do a couple other designs with monochromatic stars in blues and pinks for baby cards as well.  I was kind of wishing I had a Wink of Stella pen to add some glitter to all of my stars but since I don't I added a dot of Stickles to the centre of each one for a little sparkle.  I also want to link this card to the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge.  I don't make too many one-layer cards as I'm not that confident with my stamping.  Maybe this challenge will help me to get a little braver?  The challenge this week is to restock your card stash.  I was thinking maybe I should focus on a big occasion like birthday cards or something but congrats card are often needed too so I can now consider my Congrats card stash 1 card richer (making a grand total of… 1).  

ETA:  I had also intended to link this to the Moxie Fab Trendy Star Power challenge!

Remember...we're on the use what we have kick...not that I'm doing a good job. Went to look at Archiver's for a Wink of Stella pen but they didn't have any. I love your take on Donna's card. Fabulous!

Girl, you SHOULD be more confident in your one-layer cards because this one ROCKS!!! Donna is one of my favorite card makers ever, and your CASE of her card is totally amazing! Way to go!

This is a fabulous CASE, Jen! Such pretty multicolour stars, with your signature perfect touch of bling. :)

Brilliant idea for the CASE. I wish I had thought of it. Love your colors and your stamping. You should try more one layers--you have the talent.

LOL! General congrats cards are a category that doesn't get much love at my house either! This is so fun with all the bright colours :)
