CASEing Danielle

I absolutely fell in love with Danielle Flander's card this week at CASE Study and just had to make a stab at it.


What I thought was so charming was her little lifted frame with the sentiment inside.  Here's my take on her card:


I decided I wanted to use this pretty Hero Arts Circle Doily, so I chose some Tide Pool layering paper as my card base and white embossed the doily off the edge.  Then I made my little frame using a piece of paper from Echo Park's Happy Days pad and a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen, and stamped my sentiments from Simon's exclusive Flower Friends set.  My embellishments are both Martha Stewart: a hydrangea sticker, and her punched butterflies.

I'm pleased with the way this turned out!  Thank you, Danielle, for your wonderful inspiration!
