Stampin' Up! Only Challenge 194: Case a Card

Once again a challenge has encouraged me to take a closer look at designs and create a card that I otherwise would have surely missed out on making.

In today's challenge over at Stampin' Up! Only Challenges we are encouraged to CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) a card from one of the three current SU! catalogs.

I noticed on page 150 of the annual catalog that the set "Sheltering Tree" is done with embossed white, not green, leaves. I thought that was a really cool idea, so that's what I did. I left out some of the other elements there so the tree would be the focal point.

My supply list is:

*Pool Party Reinker
*Marina Mist Reinker
*Soft Sky Reinker
*Pear Pizzaz Reinker
*Soft Suede Ink
*Pear Pizzaz Ink
*White Embossing Powder
Versa Mark Ink
*Watercolor Paper
*Marina Mist Card Stock

Theirs is on a bag, but a card was real easy to make too. I love how the embossing looks. (Why didn't I think of that!?)

I'll have to look through the catalogs more closely to find other cards that I can case. I feel like I've been missing so much!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and have a blessed day!
