The Challenge Spark (CASE from SU catty)

So this week, Jane challenged Tara and me to CASE (copy and share everything) a card from the Stampin' Up catalogue. There are so many neat cards in there that it was a tough call. So! I got a certain precious 4-yr-old boy to tell me which one he liked best! He chose many of the stamps I used as well! So really, he gets the credit this time! (Thanks, Boy!)

I used the Moon Lake goose for this one, along with SU watercolor paper and inks. Gotta love that watercolor paper!! I stitched the watercolor paper on with white, just like the original card (bottom) but it lacked PUNCH, so I quick added a hot pink accent with my faithful sewing machine.

And for this card (above) I used the World of Dreams nest silhouette. I loved how the bright pink stitching just popped it and gave it life.

And this is the original card (below) from page 108 in the Annual Catalogue. It looks to me maybe they used canvas for their focal point, but since I don't have any on hand I substituted with watercolor paper.


And for next week, Tara says we're making you a pop-up card! Now THAT'S gonna be a real challenge as I've never EVER made one of those before! Check back...

Gorgeous Card! I studied that one but no inspiration came with it so kept on paging!
