CASE Study #175

  If you are here for the Hero Hostess Blog Hop (sponsored by Hero Arts), please click here
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hello, friends! It's another week of inspiring work from my lovely friend Donna M. over CASE Study #175. Previously, I had done some CASing of Donna's work (my two attempts--see here and here). Today I am taking this wonderful chance to stretch myself and channeling my inner Donna.
Here is my take
XOXO
Supplies: Tweed Pattern (Hero Arts), sentiment from Love Notes and arrow Diecut (CAS-ual Fridays Stamps), Basic grey paper, Glossy Accent, ware-coloring pencils, gold embossing powder

 Donna's cards are generally full of happy bright colors and they are infused with a touch of chic. That's the direction that I was going for....
 I thought it would be fun to have my card posing with the souvenir I got from the market in Aruba. They are both colorful and seem to be made for each other!?
Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. Your comments always make me smile:)
