Inkspirational Challenge Week 3 CASE

 I've got to confess...until I entered the Inkspirational design team call, I'd never CASEd a card - I wasn't even sure what it meant!

This is what I learnt - it's using someone else's card for inspiration. It shouldn't be a total copy, just a few elements, like the colours, the layout etc.

This beautiful card by Victoria Jeffries has a Clean and Simple style, but is actually extremely skilled. My version is less skilled! I tried to keep the proportions of coloured card to stamped image, but changed the shape slightly and rounded my edges as in Victoria's card.

I embossed Coredinations cardstock with a Sizzix folder and sanded it. The birds are a digi stamp from A Day for Daisies, who are our sponsors this month.

Please join us at Inkspirational Challenges  and show us how Victoria's card inkspires you.

Hi Marina, I think we are our worst critics. Your card is lovely. Love the image and how you have coloured it in! The touch of pink on the trees just adds that little bit of colour. A great CASE :) Take care Meg
