Hi there!  Thank you for paying me a visit. This week’s challenge at Global Design Project is especially exciting, because we get to CASE Brian King’s project. Not only that, but the winner gets to be a guest designer at Global Design project for SIX months!

If you aren’t familiar with the term, “CASE,” it can have several different meanings. I like, “copy and selectively edit.” And, for Brian King, it would also mean “clean and simple.” Here is Brian’s project. See all the open space?

Coming up with unique designs for challenges is my favorite thing to do, so I couldn’t wait to get started. I decided to use the Cake Soiree Stamp Set and Sweet Cake Dies for this challenge.

A pink and green color combination is one of my favorites, so it was easy to copy Brian’s color scheme. I chose our new color, Petal Pink for the card base, and I framed Whisper White cardstock with Basic Black cardstock. Black really makes the colors pop, and Brian often uses this layering technique.

The Cake Soiree Stamp Set has the cutest flowers, leaves and sprigs, which I haven’t used nearly enough, so today I am featuring them! I stamped three pairs of leaves in Pear Pizzazz in the location of Brian’s bouquet. Then, I stamped two flowers in Flirty Flamingo and one in Grapefruit Grove.

The flower has a die in the Sweet Cake Die Set for cutting, making it simple to place them on dimensionals. I also die cut the four, white sprigs along the bottom, and glued them in place.

A pretty “Happy Birthday” is in the Cake Soiree Stamp Set, which I stamped it in Basic Black, just as Brian stamped his sentiment. 

Thank you, Global Design Project designers, for this opportunity. I would love to join you in designing for your weekly challenges. All I can say is, “pick me, pick me!”
