CASE-ed 21st Card

Back to card making after a three week break with relaxing holidays in Bulgaria and Marrakech - I've a couple of special orders to make then I'm in full Christmas card mode!

I was inspired to make today's card after finding a card using the same stamp by Donna at Donna's Doodles (sadly no longer posting):

I loved the layout of this card which I have kept but I've changed the colours, the background die to a circle, the position of the greeting and the Card Candy placement.

I have had this old Woodware '21st' stamp for about 5 years - I've coloured with vivid blue and lime green pro-markers, then carefully fussy cut. The patterned backing papers are from a DCWV  pad and I've added a greeting created on the computer in Publisher.

Finally, to make the numbers really stand out I've added some Card Candy, also coloured with the same pro-markers and attached with foam pads.

This card is soooo bright!!

I'm playing along with the challenges at :
