CASEing Heather

Dear Ones~

I have yet another challenge from Papertrey Ink for you today. Here is the explanation about this challenge:

With all of the new projects shared by our team during the release, we know you are left with lots of ideas and "I have to try that!" moments.  We present the "Create Along With Us" challenge.  This challenge allows you to select something that the amazing team has created during the release that inspired you, and create your own version.  Your project could use a color scheme that inspired you, a technique, revisit an older set, etc...  

I chose to CASE the very talented Heather Nichols. Here is her card:


 I picked this card because I love the clean, simple lines, the stitching, and the burst of color with the flowers.

And here is my card:

I used Papertrey Ink stamp sets Botanical Silhouettes and Day Dreamer, stamped them with various inks on the bottom portion of the card, then attached a Spellbinder Die Cut border on top with a paper that matched one of the inks. While Heather used white, I chose to use that beautiful GKD Ocean Mist color. It's one of my favorites. The "hi" was cut 6 times, with the last one being blue, and then I layered them all together for dimension. And of course I added the Judy Sequins. I have been using them on everything lately.

Here are the Ingredients:
Papertrey Ink Rustic Ivory Card Stock
GKD Ocean Mist Card Stock
GKD Kraft, Turquoise Sea, Warm Cocoa and Ocean Mist Inks
Memento Teal Zeal Ink
Papertrey Ink Day Dreamer Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Botanical Silhouettes Stamp Set
Spellbinder A-2 Bracket Border Die
MFT Die-namics Happy Hello Die
Sequins and Glossy Accents

We are getting ready for the Adored Ones to arrive. We will get them tomorrow and have them until Monday. They have Winter Break, so of course Grammie and Grampa need to have them here for some hugs and play. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!!!
