Be inspired and then produce... the art of CASEing!

Here's a card I received from my BFF, PennyO, after she and her hubby stayed with us for the weekend... I absolutely love this card. It's so simple, and yet your eye doesn't seem to want to "rest" on any single feature. This card was made using the Certainly Celery Prints DP from SU and our 1 3/8 circle punch, the ticket punch, and the large oval punch. It's all about the layering and didn't she do a GREAT job? I thought so, that's why I CASEd it...twice!

I used the exact same design, but needed some birthday cards, so I changed the paper, ribbon, and sentiment to cater to what I needed. One is for my brother, whose birthday is Feb 20 and the other is for a friend born on Leap Day!



This one is more feminine (with the ribbon) b/c it's for a female...

I don't know if you can see it, but I added Crystal Effects to the Oval punched "Happy Birthday" to add just a little more dimension. It didn't come out exactly like I wanted, (b/c it smeared a little) but it still works for what I needed.
Thanks for checking in on me... and...
here's a SHOUT OUT to all my new SISTAH'S out there in the Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers (group 10).

Little known fact about me: I LOVE dangling earrings... but don't have many... I hate having to wear the same earrings several days in a row, but it seems every time I get new ones, they break or I lose one, or better yet, my daughter, Kailynn, seems to find them in her grubby little paws. :) Gotta love kids, right?
