CASEing Karen

Hi there.

I hope you're having a great day!

We've been at the Outer Banks and had beautiful weather.

I love the beach!

I'm CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) my dear and talented friend Karen (Snippets).

She is one of the DT at The Flower Challenge which has become one of my favorites.
(Have you noticed that I like cards with flowers on them?)
This month their challenge is to CASE one of their Design Team cards.

My background is done with alcohol inks and this fantastic die,
makes it's own frame.

This is actually one of the cards we did in this month's class.
Everybody loved this one and got to choose from different backgrounds.

Since I used this fabulous Poppystamps die, I'll enter it at

In case your interested, here is a couple of pictures I took from the balcony off our room.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.


Card Recipe
Paper:   Neena (110 lb. Solar White), Whisper White (SU), Photo Paper (Kodak)
Other:  Floral Stem Collage Die (PS), Charles EF (Cuttlebug), Candy Dot

Oh my gosh ... I LOVE your card. That AI background is so beautiful, Bonnie. It's funny that we used the same die for our entries. :) Mine was a gift from you, so it just goes to show we are on the same wave length, my friend! :) I'm sure Karen will enjoy this too! :)

The pictures of the ocean are just gorgeous. Looks like you had fantastic weather. I hope you got in lots of R&R. xx

A striking card of white silouette against gorgeous beach colors b'grd. Plus photos of the beach. What a perfect way to start my day.

I do love your background Bonnie -
Glad you had a nice time at the beach - there are a lot of times that we can hear the ocean from our house. We are a good block back from the beach. Would you believe we seldom go!
Now back to your delightful background - what kind of paper did you use and what colors!!!! I really would like to know!

Beautiful AI background for that lovely flower die - gorgeous colours! And thanks for the photos of the beach - looks like it was warm and sunny (something I could use after our cold wet spring!).

Gorgeous AI background, Bonnie for your beautiful die cut flower. I have a card finished using the same die (gifted by you) for the same challenge...third times charm! We do have fun sharing.

TFS your beach photos too. It has been gorgeous up the river the last 2 days and we are expecting several more days. A great time to tackle all the weeds...again!

A big hug my friend...

Your alcohol ink background is just gorgeous and I love that frame! It works so perfectly with backgrounds and may just be one I have to have! Gorgeous case of Karen! Not easy to choose only one of her cards to case since she has an amazing gallery!

Daria said...

Beautiful! I love the way that embossed background looks, and your polished stone background is gorgeous. TFS.
