BEST Friends Forever

Gonna try to keep it short and sweet tonight. I'm not feeling very well. A few years ago, I broke the lower part of my back while sledding up on Mt. Etna (our Volcano). Just goes to show ya that Island girls have no business traipsing around in the snow anyhow. Nonetheless, at school yesterday I was moving full speed ahead when I ran right into one of the secretaries desks. Besides the huge goose egg bruise on my thigh, I tweaked my back pretty badly. How in the world I hit my leg and the results were to injure my back confuses me. All that being said, the Motrin makes me ILL!!!!

My friend, Laura Frederickson is celebrating 300,000 blog views by hosting a challenge with prizes. Click on her name to go check out full details. The challenge is to "Case" one of her cards. Here is the card that I choose to case.

Can you see the resemblance?? Keep in mind that when you case someone's project, that you must give that person credit and you must change it up to make it your own. I changed the A LOT but I think you can still see the basic layout???

The colors I chose just so happened to be the Tuesday Color Challenge colors over on SCS. Yes I am trying to kill two birds with one stone. Why not right? I mean I had to have a sketch to go along with the colors. Anyhoooooooooo, I ran my DP through the Cuttlebug using the Textile embossing folder, sanded the raised image so that it appears distressed and white. I then used a straight stitch and sewed around the edges. The stamped image was colored using copics. The scalloped corner pieces were punched using a circle punch and just slipping the corner of the DP & the CS into the punch. For the pink, I inked the edges.

The little tag was a piece of scrap paper that I trimmed, stamped polka dots, stamped the sentiment, adhered a felt flower and pebble. I dressed my naked buttons and adhered them with glue dots. This card is HEAVY and I don't think I am quit finished just yet. I am going to play around with the inside tomorrow.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I have a few more tricks up my sleeve and I can't wait for my Twisted Thursday sketch challenge. Last weeks was so much fun. Thank you for everyone that participated. Ciao Ciao

So sorry to hear about your back.
I love the card!!!!
I am going to have to start looking at some tutorials. I will never be able to create the wonders you do, but I would love to try.

Oh Justine, I'm so sorry! Try taking the Motrin with food. Taking it with Zantac helps too.

Love your cards! Thanks for visiting my blog.
