Masked Birthday Greetings

Happy Halloween! Hope you are enjoying your ghoulish day, although it has been raining here all day and it is supposed to continue through the evening I think. Not much fun for all the little ghosts and goblins (or their parents I'm sure). I have a masked birthday card today, but not in the Halloween sense of the word. I used post-it note masks and inks to create this almost single layer card for the Birthday Party challenge at Flourishes in honor of Christine Okken's birthday and for the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch #52.

Happy Birthday Christine!

Stamps - Chrysanthemums, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Paper - Neena Solar White CS
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Juniper & Buttercup (CTMH)
Other - Birthday Trio Die (PTI), sparkles (CTMH), post it notes


  1. Connie what a fabulous card!! And a stroke of genius to mask off that double stripe down your masked banner! I am sure this will bring a smile to Christine's face for sure! So glad I could see your beautiful creation today! :)

  2. Connie this is absoluetly gorgeous! I love the masking and the gradiation of colour, such a perfect backdrop for the chrysanthemums! Thanks for such a lovely card to celebrate!
