A Tryout and a few Challenges

I adore CASEing fellow stampers! I look at cards and think 'gee why didn't I think of that', then I will be inspired for making my card.  Therefore, I was very excited to see CASE Study is looking to add to the Design Team.  Since you can't be considered if you don't play, I decided to trow in my hat [well, card anyway]. ;)

For this DT tryout, we are to pick a stamper who inspires us and CASE their card. Here is my CASE:

I used Hero Arts, Playful Flowers and Butterflies, along with a sentiment from my brand new, just arrived in the mail today, Simon Says, Flower Friend.  [I love this font!]

I found this card below, which initially I thought was one of Chupa's, but looking further I think it was a card she pinned just because. 

So, apparently, I am CASEing an unknown stamper. I hope this is okay since CASE Study does pick stampers from all over.  Plus, I really liked the card I created, so I am going with it.



For today's challenges I am joining in A Blog Named Hero; layers, Curtain Call; use confetti, Shopping Our Stash; use numbers and lastly, Virginia's View Challenge; stencil.  Also qualifies for CASE Study this week!

In honor of Jen sponsoring Curtain Call, I used her April Sketch For You To Try.  I don't have any of her stamps, but I had fun with the sketch anyway.  My background is water colored and after it dried, I used a stencil.  I went with fabulously bright colors because when you are on the other side of 55 your eyes start to go!  [Right?!] -- Lol, my friend is going to kill me when I write that on the inside .................. bawahaha!

Vicki, that card you CASE'd is from Danielle Flanders, if I'm not mistaken. I have it pinned in my card inspiration board but not always care to add a name of the stamper to the description.
I love what you did with the inspiration, such a cheerful card!
