Pears Birthday

Tuesday...a new CASology prompt.  It is not Valentine related, no heart, so I had to make a card.  The new word this week is Birthday!


I am taking the Online Card Class, CAS 4 and I used one of today's wonderful lessons to make this card.  I now know how to have "fun" with fun foam.  I happened to have some on hand and this pear was created with a Memory Box die and said material. I inked the shape up multiple times, lined up, all on a ombre shaded top panel (thanks to the current CTS # 107 for the inspiration) inking the pear shape with ombre in mind and masked along the way.  I will be trying this with other shapes too!




Here is the CTS inspiring sketch.
After studying the sketch, I think I may have to add some soft yellow or marshmallow sequins ...
what do you think?
The Inkspirational Designer's choice from Pia is ombre.  It is my first time playing here...it's their 74th challenge!
I think I will be having lots of fun foam fun!

Thanks for visiting!
