Can you CASE it Friday?

Today I'm sharing a card I made this week.  A team member from the Canada Inks Up! team that I'm part of challenged us to make a card using a stamp set, punch or set of framelits for something other than what the product was intended for.  For example, she created some beautiful cards using the Cat Punch that aren't for Halloween.

I decided that I needed a House Warming Card and I knew immediately what stamp set would work for that even though it's a Christmas stamp set.  I used the Hearts Come Home stamp set with a sentiment from the At Home With You stamp set.  This time I went to Pinterest for inspiration and I found a card posted by Teri Pocock.

Here's Teri's card:

Now, here's my card:

I used similar colours and layout to Teri, but changed up the stampset, ribbon and sentiments.  I love Pool Party and Crumb Cake together.  Apologies for the lighting of the card - it almost looks like Soft Suede!
