You Can Do It

Hi and welcome!  Today, I'm playing along with Kara's 300 Weeks of Inspiration Challenge.  For those of you not familiar with this, Kara has a fabulous Pinterest board called Friday Inspiration Files.  She pins absolutely gorgeous cards there for everyone's inspiration and you know, I don't think she's pinned a single one I don't like!

To celebrate 300 weeks of Friday inspiration, Kara is holding a challenge to choose a card and CASE it.  I chose this gorgeous card made by Wanda Guess from week 277.


I CASEd Wanda's layout, colors and text theme to come up with this card.

I stamped the You Matter background down the left hand side of a white card base and set it aside.  I then stamped some yellow roses and leaves from Altenew's Vintage Roses and arranged them into a bouquet with Glad Press 'n' Seal.  The "you" is stacked 5 high in black cardtock and I stamped the rest of the sentiment in Intense Black ink.

I popped that whole panel up on fun foam and then adhered a strip of gold foil down the left hand side before adding it to the card front.  Finally, I colored the roses and leaves with Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen.

Thanks for visiting!  I encourage you to check out this challenge and also Kara's Pinterest board.
