A Simple Kind Card And A Challenge For You!

Good morning! Here is a card that I cased from the SU! Spring/Summer IBC. I obviously changed a few things but the overall concept is the same. I choose to case it because of it's simple yet elegant style. I made it my own by using Baja Breeze, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla for the color combination and I then used my Baroque Motifs set. I also decided that I wanted to stamp the sentiment on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and I popped it up on dimensionals. Overall I LOVE how this card turned out. It was a quick and easy card and I have decided that I will probably start casing the SU! catalogs more often! And why not? They are there for inspiration aren't they?? :D So my challenge to you, my readers, is to case a card from a catalog whether it be a SU! catalog or some other catalog that you have. Pick a card, any card! I want to see what you can come up with though so make sure you post it to your blog or Splitcoast and then leave a link to your card in my comments section! I hope you find time to play because believe me, it won't be a difficult challenge once you find a card you love! Have fun and I can't wait to see your creations! :D
