Playing in Some Challenges

I love getting home from work and checking my emails for challenges that come my way.  Fortunately, my Friday post was open so I jumped in to play at CASE(E) this Sketch [I had the perfect image] and I just loved the colors in the CASE Study Challenge card from Danielle Flanders, [so trendy]

I was able to use the [so fun] images from STAMPlorations, Eclectic Florals.  I just loved Danielle's soft colors, trendy die sentiment, and the super fun loose threads!  I must say, this card looks better in real life -- softer then the photo shows.



I am also joining in with Shop Our Stash; self embellies, and Color Throwdown.

 I used rubbing alcohol with some alcohol inks for my background, Hero Arts; Essential Messages, for my sentiment, and I made the circle, heart and bfly as my embellishment.  I might have added that little pop of red -- just because. :)



See you on Saturday with a JUGS Photo Inspiration!


Thanks for stopping by~
