CASology's 5th Birthday!

One of the very first challenges I ever dared to "play cards" with was CASology!  CAS was a new-to-me phrase, but it was a style I truly adopted as my own.

So, it is with great pleasure for me today to make a card to celebrate CASology's 5th birthday!   Their Cue Word couldn't be more perfect:


Without further ado, here is my card ... in the style of one of my favorite card designers,  Keren Baker:


I've used a clear acetate card base, with an extra little strip of acetate to adhere the escaping balloons - time certainly does get away from us, doesn't it!

Congratulations, Melissa, for knowing just how to make my juices flow, and to the CASology designers who perfectly represent their Cues every single week!

Supplies:  E.H. Hinged Alphas
                   and Sock Monkey dies
                   Little Snippets of card stock
