Ava Fairy - Well Wishes Card

A couple weeks ago I played along with the Case Study challenge to CASE another player.  I played with my friend Wida and her fun CASIDEA and much to my surprise the super talented DT at Case Study picked my card as one of their Top 3 for that challenge.  What a super honor!  You can see that post with my card and the chain of inspiration HERE.

This week they have a new challenge and the inspiration photo was so fun I had to play along.  The card we have to CASE is from the extremely talented Yoshie Nakagaki aka. Torico

 Here's the card we are CASING:

Here's my card:

I kept they layout mostly the same. Changed the card base from white to red and cut out the layer of matting.  Then I added a layer behind the image circle.  I used the same basic color combination and even found an image with an antenna and wings.  The wings didn't originally have the black stripe.  I added it to make it a little more like the inspiration piece.  I used the adorable Ava Fairy stamp from Totally Stampalicious for the image.  Instead of stitching on the outside I used paper piercing.  One thing you will not find often on my cards is sewing.  Not because I don't like it but because I am not good at it.  The sentiment at the top is from Hero Arts Big Hugs.  I like that this card can be used for Thinking of you, Birthday or Thank you.  The sentiment is so versatile.

This was a FUN challenge!  If you want to play along you can find the challenge here CSC107.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card today!

Oh I just adore this card, the image of a sassy bee is just wonderful and your colouring of the image is amazing. I can totally see what your inspiration was from the CASE Study muse. Thanks for playing with us this week. Teneale
