A Place To Start: Official Launch - ATG w/Optional Twist: A Single Layer Card w/Matching Envelope

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
March is the official launch of my new challenge blog:
A Place To Start
We need peeps for our Design Team
You can apply HERE

  Although APTS is a "Just For Fun" blog, my great friend, artist Rick St. Dennis is graciously sponsoring our launch.  I love his monthly image packages and some lucky maker will win his Easter/Spring collection.

This month, I thought it would be fun to tackle the single layer card.  I have avoided this style, like the plague, because is it always CAS and that (along with pile it on and shabby vintage) have always been my Achilles heel.  But 2019 is the year of facing my paper crafting fears so...
 Birthday Wish
Personal Challenges Met:
1. CAS Design, Single Layer Card w/Envelope
2. Techniques: Splatter, blending, corner masking
3. Ancient Supplies Used:  Unity Stamps Itty Bitty Stamps
Again, I used my mermaid brushes instead of blending tools and I really like them. 
My masking technique still needs a little work, but this is the first time I have ever masked anything, so I am quite pleased with my lil old self! 
I stamped the image with VersaMark™ and then embossed with clear EP.
