CASE Study Challenge #176

Today I decided to play along with CASE Study Challenge #176. This is my very first attempt at a challenge. This week was the final week to case the fabulous Donna Mikasa of three umbrellas, and her card is stunning. I loved her combination of bright pink ink, gold embossing on vellum and gold sequins.

Here's my version of Donna's card using the same combination.

I stamped an older Stampin Up heart doily stamp with Picked Raspberry distress ink. A sentiment from the Handwritten Greetings set from Simon Says Stamp was embossed with gold embossing powder onto vellum and added to the stamped panel. I used foam dimensionals to pop the panel up from the card base. A cascade of gold sequins finishes off my card. 

I hope you like my first CASE Study challenge card. It was fun playing along.

I am also entering this card into theSimon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!
