Hambo Hoedown CASE

The challenge over at Hambo Hoedown is to CASE a card from the main gallery or digital gallery.  This is a progressive challenge and if you played along last week you received this little Dragonfly image.  It also came with two sentiments but I didn't use either on my card as I plan on using this for a birthday card.    If you didn't play and want to join in for the challenge this week, just use any Hambo image and CASE a card from the gallery.



I used some Paper Studio DP on my card and embossed the light lavender panel and Very Vanilla circle with a SU Texturz plate (although this is very hard to see in the photo as the Texturz plates do not give a deep impression).  I added pearls around the scallop circle nestie and then popped up the dragonfly that I'd colored with copis and added glitter glue to it's wings.  The dragonfly looks like one set of wings is colored darker, but they really aren't.  I think it was just the way the light was hitting the photograph.



Here's the card I CASEd that was made by Gloria Steiger.  I changed up a couple of things and didn't add a sentiment.  Check out the galleries at Hambo Stamps to see some wonderful creations.

I'll also enter this in the challenges at Crafty Catz (Things with Wings) and Meljens Designs (Use a Square and a Circle).

Thanks for stopping by.............
