Zig Zag Happy Birthday

I made this card using the colours from this week's CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge.

To make this card I die cut the zig zag die in white card and set it aside.  I die cut it in lilac pearlescent card and removed the inlaid zig zags leaving the frame inside the die.  I then inlaid the white zig zags - this is what I was doing in my previous post.  I covered the back of the die with double sided tape and removed the whole piece from the die and laid it across my card blank, trimming the ends flush with the card blank.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' once from the yellow card and twice from red card.  I layered the two red die cuts on top of each other and then offset this on the yellow die cut to give a shadow.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white hammer card blank
     Creative Expressions 'Clean and Simple - Zig Zag Border' and Crafts Too 'Happy Birthday' dies
     Snippets of lilac, red and yellow pearlescent card, white hammer card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Maximimum White Space + Optional: Geometric
     CAS Colours and Sketches - Colour Challenge
     Perfectly CAS - Birthday

So this is what you did with the zig zags, and love the lilac and white with the large red die cut sentiment over the top. A really pretty CAS card Kath. x
