StampInsanity Challenge #80: The CASE of the CASEing Crafter

Greetings! Today I have two posts to share with you. If you are looking for the Pixie Dust Twilight: Breaking Dawn Blog Hop, please click HERE (after you’ve checked out this post, of course!). This post is for the newest StampInsanity challenge. We Groovy Gurlz challenge you to “find a project you love, and CASE the crap out of it!” Ooh, that’s a fun one, right?
For my project, I took a peek at my Pintrest (if you’d like to Follow me, click the red button on my sidebar). On my Inspiration Board, I had this beautiful card.
CASE
This beauty originated HERE. I am in love with everything about this card. The layout, the colors, everything. Here’s my version.

My colors are actually a little closer to the original card than it looks here. My card photographed a bit too blue.
One of the things I love most about StampInsanity, are Beth’s amazing sentiments and quotes. They are so unusual, beautiful, and thought provoking. They all give you some sort of feeling… giddy, happy, romantic, etc. This one is all about encouragement, and I love it.

I used several shades of Distress Ink to color the oval.  It doesn’t even look like it’s on white paper anymore in real life.

I used a mess of different scraps that I had, it was so much fun picking them out. Trying to coordinate them so that one wasn’t too overpowering than the rest was a bit time consuming, but I love the original so much, I think I’m going to try it in a bunch of different colors.
I hope you will play along with the Groovy Gurlz for this challenge. To get more CASEing ideas, please visit the rest of the StampInsanity team, listed in my sidebar. And be sure to stop by the SI Blog too. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
