CASEing Kelly Blog Hop‏



Hello everyone:

I am super thrilled to be part of the CASEing Kelly Blog Hop!!  :)    Kelly was my design team mate on the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Blog, and I admire her work tremendously!  It was a pleasure to work with her.  So this is my way to say: Thank You Kelly and I wish you the very best in your future endeavors!!

You should have arrived from the wonderful Char (Glitter In My Kitchen).  If not, you could go back to the beginning and start at a2z Scrapbooking.

Here are three of Kelly's cards I draw my inspirations from:

Kelly's intense and bright colouring is awesome in this one layer card!!

The attention she gave the stamped sequins is just impeccable!

The bold black sentiment hold its own againest the brillantly coloured flowers!  Don't you agree?

And this is my very humble CASE:



I love Kelly's one layer CAS look but I am kinda 'clean and layer' gal.  So I mask, stamp, and colour my succulents on a separate piece of CS, trim and add to the watercolour splattered card base.  It is quite obvious which elements I picked from Kelly's cards for my CASE thus no need of further explanation.  :)
