Blogger's Challenge - CASE

This week, the challenge was to CASE ("Copy And Steal Everything") a fellow Blogger's Challenge member. EVERYONE is so talented, it's hard to choose one! But I kept coming back to this card, made by none other than my BFF Lisa Martz:


I love the layers and the different shapes....it's just a fun card! Here's my CASE:


My CASE was the sketch, or the layout of the card. I obviously changed the colors and the images to make it my own. I used some of the new In Colors that I absolutely love this time! My base is Rich Razzleberry, and the next layer is a piece of the textured Melon Mambo and a piece of the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper (LOVE THIS!). The next layer up is another piece of the Razzleberry Lemonade paper in a different color/pattern. I used images from the stamp set Blooming With Love. I replaced Lisa's beautiful coloring on her card with paper piecing on mine! I'm not a very good colorer! I'm working on it though! The pot is another one of the new In Colors called Dusty Durango - it makes a great terra cotta pot! The flowers are cut out and layered on also, that's how I got them to overlap the pot. I JUST got the eyelet border punch -- can you believe that?! I've survived this long without it! It's very fun and I'll be using it a lot now that I have it! I stamped the watering can on the Melon Mambo piece with the VersaMark pad. That part was an after-thought -- it may have made the card a little bottom heavy.......now that I think about it, there's nothing wrong with bottom-heavy! ha ha! Bottom heavy is beautiful! I think this may have opened a new door for me -- I think this is the first project I've done with NO ribbon in a long time!

Well, that's it for today. Gotta go clean some more and cut paper for my open house tomorrow. (Anyone that is local is welcome to come! Email me if you need info.)

Thanks for stopping by!
