CASE(ing) Kelly Blog Hop...


 Hi there.. You should have arrived here today from the fabulous DAWN TURLEY for the..
  CASE(ing) Kelly Latevola  Blog Hop

Now you may not be aware but over on Kelly's Blog she does a CASE(ing) Genius posts.. This is were she asks/chooses someone (you) to participate by sending her 3 cards of your choice and a little blurb about yourself..  then she creates her own card by taking certain elements from each of the 3 cards you send to her.
So this time around a few!!! OK all of us that have been "cased" decided to have some fun and turn the tables around so to speak and case Kelly as a surprise...

 Below is the 3  I have chosen from Kelly's cards...
1st Card-   I love the head shot image Kelly did for this card.

2nd Card - I love the stencil background Kelly did on this card- it helps direct the eyes to the image.

and
 the 3rd Card - just love these beautiful coloured butterflies with the white dots..

So after taking some elements from  Kelly's cards above..

Here is my card below CASE(ing) Kelly..


 I was totally inspired by the 3rd card and the Butterflies with those beautiful, bright rainbow colours she used  and her use of a white gel pen to add those little white dots of pop....
 I used a Prima Stamp called Sharon to mimic the head shot image of her 1st card and the CAS style. On Kellys 2nd card she uses a stencil to give that soft look and take away the stark white background card and that's what I did on my card as well.

I coloured "Sharon with Copic Markers and the background is Distress Inks thru an MFT Grid Stencil.

I hope you like it Kelly...and as the sentiment says..
"I think your all sorts of wonderful"
