Kara's Inspiration Challenge


Kara over at KandRDesigns is hosting a little challenge to celebrate 100 weeks of pinning her weekly Friday Inspiration File on Pinterest. I have been enjoying Kara's blog and her Pinterest pins FOREVER, so I thought I'd take part in the challenge (I always love a chance to CASE someone!).

The challenge is to pick one of the cards in the Friday Inspiration File and CASE it. I chose a card from week #98.

This is the card I created.
I warn you, I didn't come close to the card I was CASEing, probably because I chose a MASTER to CASE. :-)
I used (all PTI) Rosie Posie stamps. Block Alpha dies. Patterned paper Plain Jane. Basic White card base. Fresh Linen ink. SU! Soft Suede ink, and Ranger Liquid Pearls in bisque.

Are most of you already shouting - "That's Pamela!"?  - well, you would be right.

This is Pamela's gorgeous card (please, if you want to pin this, go to Pamela's blog and pin from the original source).

It would help if I kept the original in front of me while I worked, but I like to CASE by looking, examining, and then going with what is in my head, rather than the actual card. I think my card has promise, and I'll be using this design again (thanks, Pamela!).

Thanks, Kara, for hosting this challenge, and for your inspiration file. I love your work, and I love your choices for inspiration!
