A Birthday Bloom


Today’s Can You Case It challenge pays homage to our retiring 2014-2015 In Colors with a touch of gold.  I’m truly going to miss them, but I’m looking forward to the new incoming one’s.

Even if you don’t have these exact colors you can use similar colors that match them and get your card entered. Color challenges are good for the soul and help expand the imagination.



  • Left overs.  When you cut out cardstock with framelits or punches and then decide not to use them don’t throw them out.  Return them to the storage pouch you store them in and save them for a rainy day.  Had I not saved the Deco framelit piece of Strawberry Crush I wouldn’t have been able to put this card together.

Retired Product Community.  Are you looking for a retired stamp set and haven’t had luck finding it?  Maybe you can find what you’re looking for in a Facebook group I created just for this purpose. I’m even doing a giveaway today at 3 p.m. (PST) for a Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath kit.
