So Much Talent!


Oh my goodness, have you seen the cards submitted so far to the Case Study challenge #148 this week.  If not, you HAVE to go over and check them out - they knocked my socks off.  Seriously.  And there's still almost a week to go!  I'm throwing my little contribution into the mix, even though it certainly doesn't measure up!  But that's not what it's all about, right!!  The challenges are SO inspiring, and have made me grow as a card maker ten-fold.  I love looking at all of the other work and have learned SO much from other card makers.  The talent out there just leaves me in awe!

Here's the inspiration card:

And here's mine:

I was also very much inspired by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner's cards for the Hero Arts blog hop this week.  They both made similar cards, and I just loved them both!  I also wanted to try adding some fine, diagonal lines to my Lawn Fawn alphabet set.  I just love this look, but didn't have anything in my stamp stash to give me this effect, so I thought I would try to create it for myself.   A few butterfly stamps (Stampin Up), white embossing powder, some splatters and some black twine completed the card!  I think I will use it for a wedding card :)

Hope you're having a good day!


  1. Awesome!! Love the strokes effect! So bright and cheerful!!

  2. We came home yesterday, I headed straight to your site, saw this AWESOME card, tried to comment - and internet was down! Gahhh! So here I am this morning, coffee in hand, back admiring, oohing and aahing and absolutely LOVING this card! Way to go with the background; gorgeous effect! Add the embossed butterflies, your "line" and the sentiments, and the result is a perfect wedding card!!

  3. Fabulously artsy! Thanks for playing along at CASE Study this week!


Thank you for leaving me a comment - I appreciate them so much!
