Stamping With Friends Blog Hop - CASEing a Demonstrator

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop as we share what projects we are currently working on to inspire you! You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their wonderful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.  This time our theme is "CASE another Demonstrator".    Do you know what CASE means?

It means "Copy and Share Everything".  That's what you do when you see a card or project you like and you use it to create your own cards.  You can copy it exactly or you can copy parts of the project. Anytime you CASE a card and share it on Social Media, you should give the person you CASE'd from credit.

For today's card I have cased Diane Evans and her card from a recent International Highlights Winners Blog Hop.  I loved Diane's card and used the layout for my card featuring the Stampin' Up! Fitting Florets Suite of products.  This suite is available while supplies last!  The Designer Series Paper is amazing!

Check out Diane's card.  Isn't this pretty in Black and Petal Pink featuring the Splendid Day Bundle.

Now, here's my version.  Can you see the similarities?
