casadia anyone? (CAS(E))

Friday was a good card karma day for me.  You too?

Having already created one card in the morning, I found Wida's email .  Do you know Wida from Beachorado?  Of course you do.  Do you know the CASADIA challenge she started?  CASADIA was started with one card  from Laura B. which was CASED.  Then that card was CASED.  And then that card was CASED.  And so on, and so on.  Cool idea, eh?

This is the card that got the ball rolling.  From Laura B.

Fast forward...this is Rose M.'s card which I got to CASE.

Now for my card.  My CASE?  Let me warn you it's CASE a la Aimes of Crafting Confessions, which basically means pick the elements that jump out and hit ya and make a CAS card with 'em.

Well, the huge "dearly" immediately morphed into "deer".  And that led to the rest of the card.  Polka dots -  - couldn't resist kissing those onto Bambi.  I broke the red/white trend but still went with a dramatic color combo of dark gray and gold, adding a touch of red with my sentiment.  And heart - I chose this sentiment because it contained the word "heart" - the focal point of Rose's card.

As for the design, I still had CASE This Sketch #2 on the brain after this card so I'm hooking up there again.

You should check out the entire chain of CASADIA cards here.  Better yet, play along.  I would love to see a few of my followers join the fun... Thanks Rose, for a great card to CASE and Wida for a great idea!  Meredith M. is up next.

p.s.  Apologies for my windy day photo including fingers.  But I couldn't resist using this one.  Did you see how the sun caught the bling on Bambi's bum?  Couldn't do that again if I tried :)
