Waltzingmouse Case Card July 2011 Cameo

Today I am showing you my CASE (Copy and Share Everything) card for the Waltzingmouse competition.
Instructions are easy... Find a card or project from any of the projects posted over the past few days by the WMS Design Team, CASE that project using Waltzingmouse Stamp images, and link it using the Inlinkz on Claire’s blog at At the end of the competition, one project will be randomly selected to be highlighted with a Parade of its own on several of the Design Team blogs. Competition will close on August 10th. The hard part is deciding which design to case. 

I've been watching the design team entry blogs for
the past few days and decided on one by Sarah Martina Parker - you can check out her blog at  OK it is hard for me to get used to the idea of copying someone else's design - so I tried to stick with her basic sketch pattern and make it my own.   Just as Sarah's daughter was the inspiration for her design - my daughter was instrumental in influencing me on this card.   I knew I wanted to do a 180 degree opposite of Sarah's design and decided  to use a glittery leopard print for my background.  My daughter flipped over this idea and gave the end project her teen seal of approval.

I couldn't come up with a gold flower to match so crafted my own out of the lace I used for the border at the top.  I just put some ribbon strip adhesive along the length of the ribbon and crimped it every few centimeters.  The center decoration is just a button I had on hand that I snipped the loop back off of. 

This is Sarah's card design.......................                                     This is my CASE Card.
