Inspired by Julie Masse

The always-talented Julie Masse published a card in the recent Stamp It 3 Ways that knocked my socks off. The colors and the layout both struck me as awesomely CASE-able.

My CASE (Copy and Share Everything) is pretty close to the original in everything but stamp style and proportions. While Julie went with vintage, distressed border images that provide a really excellent contrast to the strong sentiment, I had only crisper images to work with in my hoard. Note the difference in the overall feel of my card...and how stamp style can change of the feel of a card. A LOT.

The Dot Spot set from Papertrey has only one problem...there are larger spots and small ones, but not much in the middle. This lead me to change the proportions of Julie's card considerably. To make my smaller circles stand a little stronger, I chose a slightly brighter blue than Julie used, and brought attention to the smaller, lighter sentiment by leaving out the bling in the circle where the tail of the "y" points.

What a great card for OWH, don't you think?

Many, many thanks to Julie Masse for sharing her talent in Stamp It 3 Ways and providing such wonderful inspiration!!!!!
