CASEing Arydth!

Hello there,

Have you seen Ardyth turned 50 this week! A very Happy Birthday young Lady!

Over at Muse there is a fun challenge to CASE one of Arydth's card. Ever since I have been crafting Arydth has been an inspiration to me and I have CASEd many of her cards. I especially like her CAS graphic cards.

I have so many I would like to CASE but time may not allow this week. However I did make one yesterday and am so happy with how it turned out.

Here is is:

And here is Arydth's card I CASED:

The elemnets I chose were:

-a square card (so unusual for me and I did struggle to get the measurements right!)

-the placement of the sentiment-I have had this sentiment for Father's day on my craft table so hunted through the cards I had tagged of Aryth's card and found one that suited this style of sentiment.

-the rainbow strip-here I used the STAMPlorations grunge stamp and repeated stamping it in rainbow colours on a separate piece of card and then just attached it to my main panel. I decided not to add a black stripes as these grungy stripes are less graphic than Arydth's card.

-the placement of the sequins but I went for coloured enamel dots instead of sequins as for my card I think this looked better.

Wow, you can see I was totally inspired and thank you Arydth for being a continual inspiration! And heh, 50 is so young!

I will also enter this into:
