Inspired by...

I have a CASEd card today, which is something I don't often do. Not because I don't admire the work of others but simply because its harder for me to create when I am starting with a bunch of parameters. Its the same reason I have a hard time with sketches and challenges. However today I saw this card by Nichole Heady and I just had to make something similar.Here's a close up of the tag. I used a nestie from my classic ovals to cut the shape. I stamped it with the smallest of the flowers from PTI Beautiful Blooms 2 in Lemon Tart. I stamped the middle in orange zest and the sentiment in Simply Chartreuse.
The whole card. The base is a piece of simply Chartreuse cardstock. I ran it through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder. Next I layered on some white that I stamped with the largest flower from Beautiful Blooms 2. I used Lemon Tart, Orange Zest, and Simply Chartreuse. I layered some orange zest twill where the cardstock meets together. I love the color of the simply chartreuse but I wish the ink worked better. I had to reink it again. Very frustrating.

I think you rocked the casing bit. I kind of thought I might try this set to see if I could get a similar look to Nichole's card and the answer is YES! Thanks for the inspiration.

Fabulous! Love the CASE -- and I really think your Simply Chartreuse turned out lovely. I can't even get that color out... I get that icky gray/green combo.

WOW! I like the embossing folder you used even better than the original!
