Case-ing our DT Host

It's our Case a DT Challenge at Just Us Girls
and Hosting is Vicki.
While browsing Pinterest some time ago
I came across a card by our very own Vicki Here
made way back in March 2013 so kept it in mind
for this very Challenge.

Here is my 'CASE' of Vicki's very soft pretty card
 with my somewhat brighter one!
How styles have changed eh! But I do like
Vicki's beautiful card so cased it for fun.
I am a little disappointed it didn't turn out as nice
as I had hoped. My starting point was the three flowers.
I wanted to use the few I had left from 
Inspired by Stamping - Now closed.
The Owner Joanne lived in Australia for a time and
I bought a bunch of her fabulous products.
Vicki was lucky enough to be on her Design Team.
After heading off to create it I realized near the end
 they were too big.
I chose to use the coloured card stock to match those flowers
and had to find ribbon the same to make a soft bow.
Then to find colours that would blend with the rich burgandy.
The two I picked seemed to blend in quite nicely.
Thought I had an ef the same as Vicki's only to find it
was a stencil so chose another. The strip on the side
is the same (I think) and an old MS punch.
The die cut frames and sentiment are from IBS.
Added my flowers (not as nice as the IBS ones)
 a few pearls and adhered to the burgandy card stock.
You  will see an amazing array of Anything Goes cards
from the Team then pick one you would like to 'case'
and add to our Gallery mentioning who's card took your fancy.
Hope yours is there!

The 'Shape of Things'

Our New Challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters
is all about shapes of all sorts

I found this Layered Circle Technique recently
on YouTube Here
and decided to try it out with some DP's in my stash.
So easy to make and so 'fun'.
Circle die cuts are from MFT and the
small circles - Ringlets from Memory Box
Sentiment is from STAMPlorations
and finished with adhering to white card base.
Just before that I decided to add it on an angle
just to be a little different.
Pop over and see what my Sistahs created
with this fun theme.
Love to check yours out in our Gallery.
