Hello again, I am back with another card. I was at Ujjwal’s blog earlier drooling over her Lily Pad card. I thought I’d play along too. I was going to do a CAS card but don’t know what hit me and I decided to make this.

             

I CASEd Amy Sheffer’s card shown below for CASE-A-Diva dare.

Eeeee! I know! NOT CAS! haha I was suppose to just stick a butterfly where the flowers are but I thought I’d use some gorgeous papers from Ujjwal’s Store. In the picture above, they look REALLY orangey but they are not THAT bright. I drew the flowers very roughly, cut them up , distressed them and then rolled them.

I toned down my card a bit as compared to Amy’s card. Her cards are always filled with AMAZING details. But I tried to keep the elements same.

Details and detail shots:

I got the correct flower colours here! This shimmery, textured, gorgeous gold yellow paper is from Ujjwal’s store. I didnt have any orange ink in cats eye queues so I distressed them with my ever loyal Crayola markers in Yellow Orange and Orange.

The leaves are punched and coloured with Crayola in Olive Green.

The last few of the frames left from my Silhouette stash. Don’t have the new blade yet. Sentiment by Hero Arts

The gorgeous gems are from Pie Lane.

Hope you like it.

Fabulous! I'm sure that you're going to make Amy proud with this stunner! What a striking design with that all-white background and that awesome pop of color! The flowers are beautiful and the sentiment panel is the height of elegance. What a wonderful CASE, my dear...it's top notch!
