Kre8tors Blog Hop: CASE Tic Tac Toe Challenge- Potted Geraniums

 I am back, after a wonderful vacation, and ready to show off some cards starting with the Kre8tors Blog Hop: Case Tic Tac Toe Challenge!!

This month's hop theme was a CASE challenge.  For those of you not familiar with the term CASE  - in card making that stands for Copy And Share Everything.  So you are to take a card that you like and copy it - I usually like to change a few things and put my own spin on it.

Here is the Tic Tac Toe board that we were to pic from - I choose right down the middle!

From top to bottom - Ribbon, Use a NEW In Color & CASE a fellow Blogger

I chose to CASE one of my wonderful Upline's cards from Chris Slogar's blog - Buckeye Inklings - This is Chris' card that I was inspired by.

So not only did I have to CASE a fellow blogger but I had to use Ribbon and a new In Color in order to complete a tic tac toe line!
I used the new In Color Sweet Sorbet cardstock for my card base and then used a piece the new In Color 6 x 6" DSP for the patterned paper.  My background paper is from the Sun Prints DSP and run through the Brick and Mortar 3D embossing folder.  

My geraniums are all die cut - where my inspiration card was stamped.  I used the Sweet Sorbet and Real Red for the flowers and Pear Pizzaz and Garden Green for the leaves.  I also used the new Deckled Rectangles Dies for the white base behind the geraniums. 
My favorite ribbon is the same ribbon that Chris used on her card - the Black & White Gingham Ribbon so I duplicated her bow.  I added 4 Classic Matte Dots at the corners to tie in the black a bit more.

 Now, it is on to see what the other bloggers have used as inspiration and what they have created.  If you are following along - Deb Naylor is up next!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
