CSC#187 Birthday Celebration!

Happy Thursday!  I love saying that because it reminds me how close we are to the weekend.  My favorite days of the week!  We put work and school to the side and focus on family.  Everyone is running around too much lately.  Thursday also means a new challenge is beginning at CASE Study!  Our muse this month is  Jaclyn Miller of Designs by JAX.   
Check out this neat design we get to CASE this time.  I saw all the shiny, sparkly sequins in the vellum bag topped with die cuts and it was love at first sight.  Did I ever tell you I'm just a sucker for a shaker card?    That was my first thought when I saw this, but then I got to thinking about the envelope and putting a die cut on top of it and wound up filling a cellophane bag with some little sparklers of my own.  Don't they just scream PARTY!!!  So that is how this turned into a birthday card.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Now it's your turn!   Need a little more inspiration?  Check out how the design team put their own spin on this one.  Just click on their names to jump to their blog.  Our special guestie this month is  Catherine Pooler from Basics and Beyond blog.
