I've used an image that I've had for a while, but I don't think I've used her yet. I've added a few pearls and some sewing around the borders of each layer, but otherwise the layout is unchanged. No ribbons, no flowers, yet I am still pleased with the result.
See, I don't need to splatter it with embellies after all.
Well, not every time anyway.
Here's my card ...
And below is Samantha's fab original card that I CASE'd. Her layout was really lovely to work with, and I've never hand stitched on a card before. I love Samantha's C&S style and in the main I did copy her card apart from the pearls and a bit of stitching. Thanks Samantha for the lovely inspiration, however, I have to apologise as she doesn't like pink (I know, she's quite clearly a crazy lady) but I just had to sneak some pink in my version I'm afraid!
