PDCC and CASE Study Birthday Wishes

Managed another card... whoo hoo.... maybe things are slowing down "just a titch" for me!! Created a card for the PDCC color challenge of Rust, Dark Storm, and Deep Sea and used the CASE study Muse... Niki Estes!! {fabulous cards, I tell ya'} You'll see in a sec that I totally CASEd the layout and focal flower in the lower right but, changed up to the PDCC colors and used Verve stamps. Added the "material" as part of the challenge on CASE study- literally as Niki did. It's actually dark gray with a light gray weave but, pic doesn't show as well. Flower is from Verve's Great Friends {one of my favs} and colored with copics and added a glitter center using crystal effects and dazzling diamonds from SU. Stitched and frayed a little on the burlap. Leaves are from Verve's Bloom and Grow set stamped in SU really rust and cut out with Verve's A Cut Above Die. Sentiment was stamped in SU basic gray from Verve's Making A Statement and stitched to the bg panel.



The colors...



Niki's gorgeous card....


Yikes, two cards in a row...definitely slowing down at my house!! Happy Tuesday... tomorrow nite is the last meeting with wedding venue....details, details, details!! DH and my other DD and I are thinking a Caribbean cruise in February is in order.... only just figured out I don't have a birth certificate to get a passport. Yeah, born on an Airforce Base and looking at online options to obtain.... I know, if it isn't one thing, it's another, right??

Thanks for stopping by and love/appreciate when you leave a comment!!
