Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!

This week, we're CASE-ing the layout in the photo above from page 159 of the Annual Catalogue. This is such a great layout and you'll see lots of inspiration from the team, so make sure you go through the hop and see them all.
When I saw the layout, I immediately thought of the new Birthday Goodness stamp set, waiting to be inked for the first time. It is a set of 9 cling stamps featuring the gorgeous display (I'm sure there is a culinary name for it) of macarons that you see on my card. I decided my macarons would be chocolate with raspberry filling and that is what I have based my colour palette on.
I started with a panel of Whisper White and stamped the macarons in Memento Espresso Truffle, which is a dark brown and slightly softer than Tuxedo Black. The macarons were coloured in Crumb Cake with the centre in light Rococo Rose. The roses were stamped again and coloured with light and dark Rococo Rose, fussy cut and popped up over the roses on the main panel. I've used Smoky Slate for the stand for a silver look. I added some retired silver Mini Sequin Trim and silver Baker's Twine for the embellishment on the side.
I realised that I had cut myself a bit short at the top, so I flagged the bottom end to give the illusion of a bit more length and added another smaller piece of flagged Silver Foil underneath (although it looks black in the photo because of reflection). I popped up the panel on some pretty Rococo Rose gingham and then onto the Whisper White card base that was embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder, which you can see a lot clearer in the photo above. I finished with the birthday greeting from Birthday Goodness heat embossed in white on Rococo Rose card stock and cropped with the Stitched Rectangle dies.
For the inside I have a mat of Rococo Rose and a strip of Crumb Cake gingham paper at the bottom. I stamped the streamers at the top in Rococo Rose and added another of the greetings from Birthday Goodness in the centre. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut 2 of the little roses for the bottom corner.
