{KKS119} CASE'ing a Card

It's the weekend!!!! My last weekend as a free woman for awhile....I start my latest contract on Monday, so don't be surprised if work gets ALOT in the way of 'me-time' and you don't hear from me as much in the coming few months:(
Today, the Krafty Girls are having a fun CASE (copy and steal everything) a fellow DT's card. This is the FUNNEST challenge I have done in awhile!!! I was so excited! The only hard thing was to choose a card to CASE from all these amazingly talented gals! So, I went with my all time favorite person to stalk, Michele Boyer. Yep- she is one of my stamping idols and I am so happy for her that she was recently asked to be a designer for......drum roll........COPICS!!!!!! Gasp! It's a pretty big deal people! And she deserves it 100 times over! So here is her card that I copied:

And here is how mine turned out....I kept the layout exactly the same, adding similar stiching, lace and twine trim, and used a button in place of her heart element. The image that I chose to use is Elaine... she is coloured up with copics, and I added some 'specs' for groundwork and bits of blue around her. Which I'm not sure I like, but hey, you live and learn with crafting, right? She is cut out and popped up on dimensionals to add some interest (and for the plain fact that I couldn't cut her out as a rectangle due to my poor stamping abilities.....I had stamped the bottom of her feet into a corner to save paper- I am funny with x-press it CS....super cheap!;)

The DP is from BG's Little Black Dress...button is SU, as well as lace....twine is Ribbon Carousel. I used an MFT die for the sentiment. The edges of the papers were all inked with Distress Ink for a vintage touch.

Alright, be sure to check out the Krafty Blog for details, as well as some inspiration from the rest of the Krafty Girls! I can't wait to see who they were inspired by!
Thanks for stopping by:)
