Card Class Contender #1: CASE this Card: "Chupa's"

Card Class Contender #1: CASE this Card: "Chupa's" 

I am crushing on all of Chupa's Designs!!

One really caught my eye and I knew that it would be very interesting to do for our monthly card class, so others could enjoy a sampling of her work too!

I case'd her card  (see below) and used a Silhouette Cameo Feather similar to the one she used.
I then sponged several Brilliance inks to another smaller card and adhered beneath the cut feather layer.
I wrapped bronze elastic cording and affixed with pop up squares the sentiment.
I chose happy Thanksgiving because we are doing fall theme,
and I am going FALL all the Way!

Supplies:
Silhouette Cameo Feather File
Hero Arts Celebrate Everyday Sentiments
Memento Tuxedo Black, Potters Clay
Brilliance Inks: Pearelscent Poppy, Pearlescent Crimson, 
Coffee Bean, Rocket Red Gold
Coppery Elastic Cording
White, and Paprika Cardstock
PTI Double Sided Banner Dies

Cards I have posted to this challenge:


WESTCO Good Guys Annual Auto Show!

My husband is an avid auto enthusiast and is currently restoring a 66 Pontiac Ventura

This is the before picture.  Yeah she does look nice as she is..  or how she was.  She is in pieces in a shop getting restored and put back together piece by piece.  Or actually just sitting until Scott has the frame delivered to be power coated and the engine block shipped from Tennessee. The restoration project has been on hold and I thought going to this auto show would get Scott enthused again to start things rolling!



Here is what was inspiring:

No day like today: Playdate Cafe!

No day like today: Playdate Cafe!

Well, usually on challenge I go outside the box, on Playdate Cafe however, 
I sometimes stick as close to the Inspiration Cue as possible.
Nothing different this time.  
I was wondering how I could use this stamp, 
did you see how it fits the image theme used of the challenge?
Wow.  
What fun it was making this card!

I was slightly confused, the CUE is colored in NEON Green, however
 the COLOR they list is NEON YELLOW.. (insert shrug here...)  LOL!

Here is my take, loving the Birthday ticket and speech bubble combo!




Stay tuned for the CASE Study 3rd Anniversary!
