Blogger's Challenge #99: CASE Yourself


This weeks challenge was to CASE ourselves but change 2 things. Well, I probably changed more than two things, but I did CASE an older card of mine.

Watercolor 1, 2, 3 was a new stamp set I bought on my Mother's Day shopping trip to Impressive Ideas. I thought it would work well with some Flower Soft that a friend had sent to me, but in this card I didn't use it...guess I'm a little intimidated by the Flower Soft.

There are so many possibilities with the Watercolor set and I'll have to play a little more with it, not 100% thrilled with how my images came out. I am thrilled to say though my DH bought me a wonderful gift yesterday (late Mother's Day)...a photo light box. I've been wanting one of these for awhile now and he thought that would make a great gift :-) Can't wait to get it as most of my photos are taken in my basement. The lighting outside is never good because of all the trees around the house so hopefully this will aid in better picture taking for me.

The flipped sketch looks great and the butterfly looks like he'll be flying off the card at any moment!
