Hi everyone and welcome to my very first CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop as a Design Team Crew Member!!!  I’m very excited to join the team.  I had been playing along with a few of the challenges previously.   I’ve really enjoyed putting my spin on some of the beautiful creations in the catalogue.

This week’s CASE is the Artistic Expression section featured on pages 132-181.

There were so many wonderful ideas to case this week I had a hard time choosing.  I decided on the Birthday card on page 149.

I made my card the standard C6 size and I changed it up slightly.

I’ve added a layer of Basic Black Cardstock to my card and I’ve made the sentiment smaller.

I’ve heat embossed the flowers from Butterfly Basics in White and the fern in gold.  If you look really closely at the white flowers you might notice they are a bit lighter in colour?   I’ve filled my Aqua Painter with bleach and just painted it on my flowers.

I’ve also heat embossed the edges of my card with gold embossing powder.  I used the Timeless Textures stamp set.  And of course I added some bling with some Mini Gold Sequins.

Thanks for joining me for CASEing the Catty this week.  Phew…..my first blog hop done and dusted.

Next up is Julia, I’m sure she has created something fabulous.  Make sure you hop around all of the team members and don’t forget to leave some love.
