CASology #131

Evening friends I've a little card to share with you today
for the current challenge at CASology where the theme is 'Birthday'
My confidence was boosted to the moon and back earlier when 
I noticed I'd won last week's CASology challenge! 
I think it's a first time for me so well impressed.
On the back of this oozing confidence (snigger) and a mass of inspiration
in blogland I've created this card ...

... and before I tell you what supplies I've used I need to acknowledge
my inspiration sources ... so first up I watched a fantastic video 
from the super talented Julia of Just One More Card here and I love
the layout she's used so I've 'cased' it and following my mini step into 
water-colouring here which was inspired by Kristina Werner I decided 
to give it another go to create my 'teddy' circle and I may as well 
sneak this card in as a second entry at Happy Little Stampers 
January CAS challenge - Water-colouring


A mini edit here thanks to Kimberley for suggesting I link up at
