This month our hostess is the lovely DINA and our challenge is to CASE each other!!! We've all been inspired by other talented papercrafters at various times and a CASE challenge (Copy And Share Everything) is one of the best ways to get those creative juices flowing! Come travel with us and see which team member has inspired us to get crafty!
If you've jetted in from Claudia's blog, then you have arrived at the right destination! If you haven't, perhaps you'd like to start your journey back in Florida at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss all the beautiful inspiration along the way!
There are so many lovely cards and it was difficult to choose which card to CASE, but I chose THIS beautiful card made by Claudia. The main image of my card is from the Garden Picks stamp set. I made two of the flowers with vellum. I embossed them with white powder and put some tiny golden glass beads on the middle of them. I also put some glossy accents on the jar. The sentiment, Happiness, is from the Cherry Blossoms stamp set. Like Claudia, I stitched many of the layers. The white vellum butterfly was made with the Fanciful Flourishes stamp set. I just added a button and some ivory jute twine. I also put a sheer satin scalloped edge ribbon, a white velvet ribbon and some lace. The embossed background was made with the Spellbinders Elegance folder. It took a lot of time to make this card and even fall is coming very fast here, I'm happy with this card which reminds me of the beautiful summer flowers we had. I wish Happiness to all of you!!
