There has to be a first time for everything, right? When I moved to Germany it took me nearly a year before I would try to speak German at work. Not that my colleagues didn't encourage me. I just wasn't willing to open my mouth before about 80% of what I said came out right. FYI, 20+ years later I'm up to about 95% and stagnating...
Well, so is my relationship with CASE Study. I love the work of everyone over there but have not felt up to playing with them. Until this week - the last week of CASE #119 with November's muse, and I quote, "the exceptionally talented Angeline Yong." I love this gal's work. So I had to take the plunge.
Here is Angeline's card.
I reverted to my CASEing-a-la-Aimes mode and this is what I got from this card - sweets, twine, dots. I should say that is what I finally got. The journey started with an idea of pink-snowflake-on-a-stick-with-a-twine-bow-and-embossed-dots-panel...blah, blah, blah. Ya'll know how the creative process is some days. Uncooperative.
But, I do like how this card turned out. It's me.
Sweets, twine, dots. Check. It helped when I saw my candy cane stamp and also decided to use the CASE This Sketch again! Heat embossed the candy cane and gave the little lollipops some Stickles to add some sweet shine.
And I was even going to use turquoise instead of green (more non-traditional), but when I went for the washi I liked the green dots better. Does it qualify for Dream Valley's Challenge #46 "Non-Traditional Christmas," don't know but I'm hooking up anyway! Also playing at Keep It Simple #2 - Washi.
Appreciate your visit.
