Card Recognition

Thursday, March 22, 2012

you're in my thoughts


This week's CASE Study had a beautiful CAS card by Laura and I immediately thought of Maile's PTI Gracious Vases set.  Lawnscaping's latest challenge is to find inspiration somewhere, so this is a great card for that challenge, since I've done a pretty close CASE of Laura's card.  And I used a Hero Arts sentiment so I could finally play along with their March Fabulous Flowers challenge.

And for those curious on my gift bag/box updates, thank you for all your morale support on my various posts.  I am happy to report that I'm done :)  With some crafty help, I managed to sit down and do the last 17 bags (the correct answer to my question), and in the end we made a few extra and ended up with a total of 82 bags/boxes and 100 tags to go on them.  What a mission....

Materials: PTI Gracious Vases, Hero Arts Live and Laugh, Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends patterned paper, PTI kraft ink, Versafine black ink, Versacolor inks, Hero Arts shadow inks, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen, PTI cream card stock

Hooray for you--so glad you finished the bags and now you can just look forward to the big day.
I thought of using Gracious Vases too but didn't, so I'm glad to see you used it! Love the soft pastels tones you used and the big sentiment to ground the image. Thanks for joining us at CASE Study!
