Thanks

This is my 2nd post of the day...since classes ended I've had so much more free time! I LOVE the color combo from this week's colourQ. Isn't it fun?!

I'm playing along with CASE study, and in honor of their anniversary blog hop, I chose to CASE Cristina. She's probably the person who inspires me the most, and I love her blog! I like to pretend that we're friends (throughout Gallery Idol, I was so giddy every time I saw that she moved on in the competition with me! I'd say to my husband "I made it to the next round- and my friend Cristina did too!). Hope that's not creepy, Cristina :)

The card I chose to CASE is this card that she made for the die cut round of Gallery Idol. If I didn't vote for my own card, I would definitely vote for this one:

My card is obviously very similar, except I changed the placement of the leaves and added 2 strips of cardstock across the bottom:


(I still like her version better, haha)

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful CASE of Cristina's card, and it works so well with the challenge colors! I love the addition of the cardstock strips to ground the sentiment. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week!

Cristina said...

Creepy? No way! I think of you the same way. And I'm so flattered that you chose my card! I love your take on it. Those bands of color at the bottom are the patented Jen touch of genius. :)

I love your card! Great CASE of Cristina's card and I think the colors you used are beautiful!

You crack me up, the funny thing is that if we ever met some of our blog friends in real life we'd still be friends... we just wouldn't return all of each other's crafting supplies we "borrowed" at weekly get togethers.

Terri said...

Great CASE of her card! It looks great in those colors too. By the way I loved everything you made for Gallery Idol, I hope you win!

Aaaah, I fell in love with that design when I saw it on Cristina's blog for Gallery Idol too!! Your version is equally as impressive, don't sell yourself short. I like your colour selection too, very bright and summery :)

As soon as I saw the linky photo I knew it was a CASE of Cristina! And you've done a fabulous job - love the colour combo. Thanks for joining us at CASE study.

You know I love a good CASE! I really like the small changes you made, it totally works. And no, it can't be creepy, especially not when I'm hoping the New England idols will be getting together soon.

Arlene said...

Jenny said...

Both cards are awesome, such a classy design :)
