BC99 - Case Yourself




Welcome to week #99 of the Blogger's Challenge Group. This week we were given the task of "Caseing" ourselves. We had to pick an old card and change at least 2 things about it. I had a hard time picking out which card I wanted to case but settled on this one. It's an old card that we did for one of my stamp club meetings about 2-3 years ago. I liked the layout and decided it would be fun to change it around a bit.
The card on the right is the new version. Yes, I changed more then 2 things. First I flipped the sketch on it's side. The most obvious change is that I used way different colors and a totally different stamp set. I also left off the ribbon on the new card as it just didn't fit the card.
I really like how this turned out. It also meets another requirement for another group I belong to where the challenge was to use Designer Paper. There are 4 different patterns on this card. The left panel, the strip down the middle, the large circle under the bird and the flowers on the branch are all done using different patterns from the Good Morning Sunshine series of DP from SU. I hope the partner that I am assigned will enjoy this card.
