Create Along with Us: Lilies of the Field

Hello! Welcome back to my blog! 

I love the invitation at PTI to Create Along With Us each month. 

After the designers have showcased the new products we're invited to CASE their projects and create one of our own, spinning off from one of their designs. This month it was very hard to select just one favorite project from all the beautiful samples.

I chose this gorgeous card from Laurie to CASE. I always want to case what she makes! 

I was inspired by the clean colors, crisp style, delicate embossing and layout of her lovely card. I CASE(D) the layout. My own card uses the Lilies of the Field stamp set, and changed the color palette. 

Of course I wanted to use my Bitty Background papers and so far my choices are limited to two colors. LOVE those polka dots!

I combined the sentiment from the new Penned Elegance stamp set with a small sentiment line from the Scripted Sayings set. I see so many possibilities for using these elegant sentiments in a bold font. 

I used a die to dry emboss the corners of the white panel. It came with the Gemini Jr. from Crafter's Companion that arrived at the post office for me today. Love my new toy! Wheee! 

Thanks for visiting!

Cindy, your card is amazing! Love the yellow and white (definitely a favorite) and the butterfly is so pretty with the white embossed vellum over blue. A lovely pop of color. Beautiful photograph, too!

Lilies and butterflies with signs of Spring = beautiful card, Cindy! Love those embossed corners and the Scalloped layer of yellow/white polka dots. Now I just might need that Lily set!
