CASEing Therese

Good morning folks.
It's been a busy week in the old craft room and this isn't the last post of it!
Today see's the start of a new theme over at the Alphabet Challenge.
Today and the next 13 days our theme is -

Y is for - YOU CHOOSE!

Free rein then for you to enter what ever YOU want!
Here is my choice.

I wanted to have a go at Caseing the inspiration from Therese Calvird over at the Flower Challenge.
I've done one using the same layout here but not with a flower. This one also uses the colours from the latest challenge at The Paper Players, although the only suitable grey card I had has a sheen to it. 
The die I used here is a Memory Box die, English Rose Corner . The technique is the same as my heart card here but I used a larger piece of ink blended paper so that the edge pokes out from under the top panel. The Happy Birthday was a die cut which I covered with Versamark ink and embossed with copper EP. I needed a couple of goes to ensure that the white card was totally covered and the embossing even. A few dots of Glossy Accents coloured with Copic to match the backing paper completed the look.

For more inspiration please check out the rest of the team here.
I'd like to join in over at -

  2. Hello Julie: This is a gorgeous CASE of our Guest Designer card, love how you flipped the die cut flowers to the other corner, looks beautiful.
    Love the shimmery glow from your panel, it makes the sentiment pop really nicely.
    Thank you for sharing your card with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you play again next time.

  4. This inlaid die is gorgeous! I love the combination of full and partial cuts between the flowers and the leaves--it really adds so much dimension and texture to the design . Lovely use of our colors--thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

  5. So pretty! Those flowers are gorgeous.Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!

  6. So beautiful and elegant, Lisa! Love your use of negative space behind the die cut flowers. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players AND Seize the Birthday!

  7. Such a wonderful card! Love how you created your own coloured glossy accent dots, I always struggle with my glossy accents, I don't think I use it enough and even with the 'fine' tip thingy I struggle lol.
