CASEing Cindy for Stamper's Dream

The Stamper's Dream Design Team is CASEing one another this week for our monthly challenge. Each member was assigned another member to CASE. I was assigned Cindy Motherway (Mothermark on SCS). And here is my story...

1. How in the world is someone supposed to CASE the queen of creativity and out of the box thinking?
2. Black/White Polka dots? Me? Really now. Have you ever seen me make a card with black/white polka dots?
3. Creative writing is so not my strong point. I'm a straight to the point with the facts kinda girl...so writing a story? PAHLEASE!!
4. Teapots? Nope...it's coffee all the way for me.
5. Intimidated? Yep...that's me!!
6. Thanks Cindy, my friend, for the inspiration!! You're the BOMB!!

So, here goes: HERE is the card of hers that I cased.
I changed the colors, the image and the corners. I loved the way she centered the hummingbird in the scalloped circles, so of course I had to keep that the same. Didn't fold my scallops over though. That's all Cindy and her wonderfully creative idea.

I also had so much fun making my own dp on the last card, that I wanted to try it again with a different color and image. For the dp on this card, I just rubbed Milled Lavender and Old Paper (Ranger Distress Ink) onto Simply Smooth White (Prism) cardstock. I then stamped the Filigree (Impression Obsession) image onto the paper with the Milled Lavender again.

The owl from the Patterned Birds and Bugs Set (Inkadinkado) was stamped with Tuxedo Black (Memento), onto Natural White (Neenah) cardstock and was colored with copics. I colored the dots on the wing with a Sakura Stardust pen to give them just a hint of sparkle.

The corners were made with a Martha Stewart border punch, and the embossed background was made with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

We'd love to have you participate also and win some blog candy. All you have to do, is CASE (which means use one of our cards as inspiration and change at least two things about the card) a Design Team member's card and post a link to Michelle's blog: Stamper's Dream. Include the link of the card you CASEd too please. If you upload your card to a gallery, please use the key words SDDC6.
