A Creative CASE and a Reminder!

I loved the sample in the catalog (on page 12) with the Simply Soft set, but I haven't gotten the set yet. So I decided I'd make the card and just use a set that I have! And it's a set that I LOVE - Creative Elements!

So I pretty much CASE'd the card, just editing with pieces from Creative Elements!

Instead of the punched and distressed flower, I stamped and cut out the butterfly. When I added the pearls I gave them a little tan coloring from a permanent marker - I thought it helped to tone them down a bit!

And then because I wanted to use it for a birthday card, I used the Petite Pairs Happy Birthday saying. I put it where the original had a hand-cut and colored branch (took out a little bit of extra work too!).

I love that our catalog (and idea book) is so full of awesome samples that make it easy to make a great card!!
