Hello!



I love looking at online stamping galleries. You can get so inspired by the ideas that someone else creates. When I'm stuck in a rut, I turn to the galleries and just start out by CASEing a card. I can't remember exactly what CASE stands for but it basically means to copy the card and change a few things up. I found this wonderful card created by Laura Williams and thought, "Hey, I can do that with some A Muse stamps!" So I did. I cut some A Muse 8.5" x 11" lined paper into a 4-bar notecard size, stamped the flowers, the sentiment (from the labels clear set), distressed the edges, added some ribbon and silver Stickles.

Now the other cool thing about this card is it meets Geeta's challenge out on the A Muse Lounge. I'm going to be posting a couple more cards using this same sentiment. Her challenge was to create 5 cards and I've only completed three but we'll see how it goes over the next few days to see if I can get 5 done.

I like your take on the original card. I've been wanting to make more cards with the lined paper, but just haven't found something I like. Till now!

The lined paper has intimidated me - until now (actually, I'm still a little scared of it). Your card is BEAUTIFUL!!
