Thinking of Paris ..



... Paris Otremba, yesterday's SCS Featured Stamper. What fun discovering her fantastic gallery! A real treat! For the challenge (CASE a card, but make at least two changes), I chose to CASE this card.

I kept the layout with the layered and mixed dp, but changed the dp and the stamp. I left off the ribbon and cut-out accents on the main image panel, as well as the brads in the four corners, then added some piercing and two half pearls along the bottom of the green block of dp. I also changed the main image panel from a circle to a square. Last, I went over the stamped image with a clear Spica for a little shimmer.

Stamps: Live Your Dream, Three for You (sentiment)
Paper: Groovy Guava, Afternoon Tea dp, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip, Garden Green (marker)
Accessories: sponge daubers, pretties kit, paper piercer, classic and scalloped circle nestabilities (by Spellbinder), slot punch, 5/8" chocolate grosgrain, Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon, clear spica

All supplies by Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

This is the first card I've seen with the afternoon tea and Live your dream combo that I actually really like. The mint green adn peach color combo just reminds me of a 1980's bathroom wallpaper! I love how you used so many different peices of dp. It really works well together. Love it!
