Case Card Challenge


This weeks "Scrappy Saturday Challenge" at Jenny's blog Wee Memories is to :-
 'CASE YOUR FAVORITE' ... favorite designer, card, layout, sketch etc. Whatever your favorite is!
This was a really hard decision for me as there are so many amazing designers out in blog land but I have decided to CASE a card (or two actually ) by the fabulous Shari Carroll.  Last week she spent a week sharing cards with another flickr member Joy Taylor and I love  this card from day 4. I also fell in love with this one which was from day 1.
This is my card based on both of those!!

I stamped the trees with black memento ink and then added Spun Sugar and Bundled Sage distress ink, to finish I spritzed them with some perfect pearls to create a shine.
I am really pleased with the finished card!!

Hope you are enjoying the weekend, not alot of time for creating at the moment as I have things to do for Christmas.
Thanks for finding time to stop by my blog and leave comments, I promise I will catch up with some blogs soon!
Hugs

Supplies:-Hero Arts stamps CL459 Merry Christmas Trees. Distress inks-Bundled Sage and Spun Sugar. Scraps of PP.

Hi Sally

A great "case" card - and you can definitely tell that you got the inspiration from those other two cards - but as always your "stamp on it" (excuse the pun!) is fabulous.

Hope you have caught up with the jobs you needed to get done and are nearly ready for Christmas?

Have a great weekend.
