Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Cathy Caines

Welcome to today's Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Cathy Caines from St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada - an island in the Atlantic Ocean filled with whales, icebergs and puffins! Cathy is a member of the Artisan Design team, her blog "In the Cat Cave" is full of amazing projects that are bound to inspire you.

As a Crazy Crafter, our task is to CASE (copy and selectively edit) one of Cathy's creations, I decided on the below card, as just like Cathy I too was a Display Stamper in November

 Petal Palette

My presentation and display stamping was for the Sweet Soiree product suite, so I thought it only fitting that I use the suite for my CASE, here is what I created:

I used DSP for my background, and changed up the feature from a stitched shapes square to a circle, and added a pop of colour featuring Calypso Coral, with a dash of Powder Pink to compliment the Old Olive stripes, and adding a touch of bling with  vellum/silver foil die-cuts from the Embellishment kit and some Silver Embossing.
