I am back to invite you to join in on another fun challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment!
This time it's "Anything Goes", but you must CASE- as that is our "twist" this week:-)
Our challenge this week is being sponsored by The Digital Emporium, and our winner will receive their choice of 3 digital images! You have until next Tuesday at 100:00PM EST to get your card in and have a chance at winning this week's prize.
I would love it if you'd CASE my card of course, and I will tell you it really was a fun one to make. I do think there could be endless possibilities here; I am actually considering CASEing myself, lol! I loved making this card for many reasons:
For starters, I used a lot of my faves on it. I really like browns. And with some cream added, and a few touches of SU!'s beautiful Baja Breeze blue, this is one of my favorite color combos.
Another fave of mine: toile. I love anything toile. This was my first time using the Elements of Style stamp set, and boy is this one beautiful set of stamps! The flowers are so pretty. I considered watercoloring them but ultimately decided to just stamp them in Sahara Sand ink onto white card stock and to give them some "pop" I cut them out. I also used the same floral stamp all around the edges of my card base.
The bird and butterflies were punched out, and I adhered the bird using dimensionals. A little pearl was added for the bird's eye.
I think the kraft colored ribbon matched really well and added a little softness to all the darker shades of brown. I also put some little pearls on the butterflies, too.
The textured patterned paper is awesome and adds a wonderful feel to the card.
And don't you just love this frame? It was actually made by my friend Lidia who has a wonderful Etsy shop called Breaking Barriers. You can check out her beautiful work and lovely items for sale HERE.
Well.... have I inspired you? I sure hope so! I would love to have you CASE me- or any one of my fellow design team members at The Perfect Sentiment. Be sure to visit their blogs to see all of their wonderful "Anything Goes" cards here:
