Case Study Challenge #198

Happy Independence Day!  Enjoy your three day weekend.  We have no special plans.  As retirees, the weekends are all seven days long.

Shari Carroll is the muse on the Case Study Challenge blog this week.  I admit to having serious problems making a card "inspired by".  I tend to be very literal and my card is more of a copy than an inspired by! 

So, out of my comfort zone I go.  This is the card Shari created:

 And this is the card I made:

30-243 Amazing; 30-225 Petal Power; 40-206 Glory of Modesty; 30-113 Petal Party; 30-206 Rose Edgings; 51-006 Flutters; 51-002 Leaves

This card is all things Penny Black.  I have listed the names of the stamps and dies I used as a caption under the card.  Just stamping and cutting and rearranging hundreds of times until it looked right to me.

I look at this card now and wonder what took me more than 8 hours to put this together.  The background has stayed the same from the first version to the last, but all elements in between have been changed and rearranged endlessly.  I told you this wasn't easy for me!!

All in all, I am happy that I stuck with it.  Now to enter it in the challenge before the deadline!!

I plan to sit outdoors in the hot July temperatures for at least a part of this day.  I think you are supposed to be hot on the 4th of July!!

Thanks for the visit!  You can check out the details for the Case Study Challenge here.
