CAS-ual fridays: long cards


The CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week is to create a 4x9 card... clean-and-simple-style!  And their words of instruction: you must resist the urge to fill it.




I kept it to one side with my bitty party birds... the birthday boy wears the hat!



stamps: little bitty bird+simple sentiments (both PTI)
paper: pear pizazz, blushing bride, marine mist, concord crush (all SU!), grid lines+kraft (PTI)
ink: versamark, chocolate chip (SU!)
misc: taffeta ribbon
