CASE a DT at LIM

What a different challenge this week at Less is More where we have to CASE one of the DTs!  As if we don't ALL THE TIME lol!  But seriously, this is a great take on a challenge, as now we have to show you what we have done with your inspiration, and explain our take on your designs.  We had great inspiration from all three DTs as usual, but I have chosen to CASE Chrissie, with her card shown here:


and here is my card:

My first point was to focus on the square on a rectangle card front, with no other covering of the card.  Then of course it was the flower feature, and here I am using the SSS partial cut flower.  My card was pretty pale compared to Chrissie's gorgeous red flowers, so I used a glitter strip down the centre of scored lines, plus the glitter paper behind the flower.  Although I loved Chrissie's large sentiment, adhered as if cut apart from the bottom image, I deviated entirely from my CASE, and used a small sentiment on a stitched tag to match my square.  Some MME glitter dots finish off a very CAS card for me.  Thank you Chrissie for your inspiration, once again:)

And as a bonus because I am using a brand new die, I am entering this card into Darnell's NBUS challenge #4  - thanks Darnell for giving us all the opportunity to use up more of our 'stuff'!

Yet another bonus challenge - Uniko Studios have an 'Anything Goes' challenge this week, so I'll be linking up there as well!

  10. Mmmm, Ann, this is so elegant! It would make a stunning wedding card and it's a brilliant CASE of Chrissie's card! I just love the beautiful white blossom and all that gold sparkle against the lush white! Your little flag sediment is so sweet, too! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #4!
