rub on the CAS


The challenge over at CAS-ual fridays is to create a project incorporating a rub-on or sticker.  I used rub-ons a lot when I first got into card-making - they're quick and easy, and no inky fingers!  But, I have to admit that the more I fell in love with stamping, the less I used my stash 'o stickers...

I dug up an old sheet of SU rub-ons - who knew it would be a clue into the future: the little owl became a punch and part of a stamp set later on :)

 I started out with a white cardstock base and stamped that with my large SU polka dot background.  On the kraft mat, I stamped "look who's turning" from PTI's "big birthday wishes" and found a jar die-cut in my scrap pile and rubbed-on the group of numbers inside.  I also rubbed-on the owl (and I had to rub a little flower onto her ear  - she was so old that a bit of her was missing!)  The arrow pointed right to the 2 makes it a cute little birthday card for a toddler!

Thanks for looking!
