CASEing Shelly

A blogging group that I belong to on SCS has started CASEing each others card - just a little something to keep us inspired.  We're CASEing Shelly over at My Creative Rumblings this time.  But there's just no way I could ever come up with some of the things she does.....she's a Technique Queen if there ever was one!  Amazing creations!


I decided to case a card she did last week where she used a technique called faux mosaic.  Check out her card here.  Now I have no idea how she did this, but based my card on that patchwork look.  I just pieced some DP's and then zig zagged around them.  I used the same layout she did on her card and even added the tiny little tag - which by the way, says "You're the Greatest".  And to top it off, I added the pink ribbon that I had won from some blog candy from Shelly not long ago and stuck a little hat pin in it that was some blog candy from Linda! 

Why is SO hard for me to photograph a pink card and have it come out looking, well..... not pink!

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

LOVE your patchwork... reminds me of quilting. And that mouse is the cutest. The spool has been coloured in so well.
Yes, sometimes pictures are never able to capture the true beauty of our creations... but I do know what beautiful cards you make, Lynn. :)

Lynn, Delightful came to my mind when I looked at this card. First off I love the softness of these colors and you did an outstanding coloring job. I LOVE your background and that stitching looks fabulous. I really need to get my sewing machine fixed so that I can try to do a little stitching on my cards. I can't sew anything, but maybe I could do enough to get a card made. Have a wonderful day.

What a cool technique, Lynn! Such a pretty mix of colors and patterns, too. So perfect with that sweet mouse image. As always your perfect bow is a gorgeous finishing touch. :)
