Welcome to a brand new concept from STAMPlorations,

Now for those who are not familiar with the term CASE, it originally meant "copy and share everything" which would mean replicating the card, but we'll interpret it as "Be inspired by the card. Notice various elements of the card design and use them in the creation of your card."

This is the card that we will be CASEing, by Julie Ebersol

and here is my CASE.

For my card I took the obvious elements of Julie's card, Cupcake, splatters, frame and chalkboard banner.
I used the It's Your Day set from STAMPlorations and heat embossed it in white on black before distressing it a little with scrapings from a white pencil crayon and rubbing it over the surface to replicate the effect of a chalkboard. I created the cupcake from scratch by folding some copy paper then inking with DI in Vintage Photo to replicate the cupcake paper. The frosting I made by cutting out a shape freehand then embossing in shabby white embossing powder then adding Copics to give a little bit of added colour and textural effect. I added some little beads as sprinkles as I didn't have any gold sequins!
I'd no gold chord either so used an inlay border of gold mirror card cut using my MFT Die-namics pierced rectangles. I added a few splashes of Worn Lipstick DI and some more little beads.

So that's my CASE, now over to you for your turn to have a play.
The rest of the girls over at STAMPloration  have lots more inspiration for you if you need it and even if you don't, it will be well worth a visit!

I shall enter this in the following challenges:-
