Show CASE - Upsy Daisy by Brenda

As much as I have wanted to get into my craft room and create a card, it just hasn't happened.  Even so, 2011 has been wonderful so far.  I have been taking life at an easy pace and thoroughly enjoying everything I do.  I never really made it a New Year's resolution but it seems like a good one now.

I've actually have a backlog of a few Show CASE cards.  Older cards I had saved in my files.  I haven't added many lately simply because I haven't been surfing as much.  Still it's great to revisit some old favorites, like today's card.

When free time is in short supply, a card CASE (Copy And Share with Everyone) can be the perfect way to have a little fun!.  Show CASE is my personal attempt to have that time for stamping , without of the pressure to create something totally original.  I want to pay tribute to the many talented stampers out in the blogosphere that are so inspiring to me.  I hope you enjoy seeing my "take" on their creation. 

Upsy Daisy by Brenda @ Card Scraps.

My changes:
I used a different flourish (from Priceless.)
I added brads and piercing instead of a second ribbon.
My sentiment, from Upsy Daisy.

Not huge changes.  Seems you always have to make a few to accommodate the supplies on hand.

If you want to see Brenda's card it's HERE.


  1. Beautifully done, Shelley! Love the paper piercing--I really should remember to do that more often. The image is so striking in black and white!

  2. Great case. Love the black silhouette and the yellow and black colour combo. Great touches too. Love your resolution too :) Carpe deum (sp?) Hope all is well (((hugs)))
