BC107 - Case A Fellow Member

Hello and Happy Friday...It's always fun on Friday's to see what the Blogger's Challenge group creates for our weekly challenge.  This week Lisa ask us to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a fellow blog member.  We could copy entirely or use their layout, color scheme, stamps etc...the hard part was deciding who to chose since we have some many talented stampers on this group.  I started out by going to Rachel's Blog (Hope Stamps Eternal) and I found this card that I really liked.

Since she called it 5 Minute Friday I thought why not give it a try since I was limited for stamping time this week having Coleen here all day as her preschool was closed this week.  Sadly I have to admit my version took me a lot longer then 5 minutes due to not cutting my card stock evenly, gluing it down with the ribbon I added and then having to tear it apart and start over.  I'm not sure how well I succeed in capturing the wonderful feel of her card and I also have to say that the "Clean and Simple" style seems to be a hard one for me to do. I kept the over all design but changed stamps and colors.

With that in mind I decided to give this challenge a 2nd try and I visited MaryJo's blog (Techno Stamper) and found this card and here is my version.  For this card I used the same stamps as MaryJo except for the sentiment.  I also used some of the same colors she used, the same sketch and kept the corner element but changed it up a bit.  I also popped up my phesant.

Thanks ladies for inspiring me and I hope my cards do you justice.
Don't forget to stop by the other blog members blog and see who they cased.
