Shameless Casing!

More shameless casing! I LOVE to C.A.S.E. (copy and study everything or copy and steal everything, I do them both). Though I don't "steal", I do give credit if I know who I cased the card from. And this one I cased from Michelle over at Painted Desert Serenade. I certainly didn't change it much. I did add a rhinestone in the center of the flower but for the most part it's just like her card. I even had just enough of the polka dot grosgrain ribbon. I didn't think I had any and I was all set to use black grosgrain and add white dots with the gel pen. Improvise where you can!!
This was a very fun card to make. The flowers were stamped, colored and the best part about that was the edges. You could color outside the lines because you were cutting that part off!!!! I LOVE it when I can do that! After they were cut out I put the Dazzling Diamonds on it and set it aside to dry. I added the background design using the Cool Caribbean, cut the layers and added those and by this time the glitter was dry. I put the flower together, added it to the card and the last thing I did was add the rhinestone. I can't wait until I can order the new ones from Stampin' Up! It's sure going to glitz up many of the cards I make!! It was fun casing Michelle's card! Thanks SO much Michelle!
Thank you all for checking in!

It's encouraging to us beginners to hear that you experienced stampers CASE too!

You did a fantastic job! I think I like the watercoloring better on your card. I need to take a class or something! Thanks for CASEing my card and for giving credit!
