This weekend wins the crazy running around award with only a few minutes to sit down. But...thankfully last night I was able to hide in my craft room for a couple of hours to create. After seeing this gorgeous card from Maureen, I decided I need to have a little shop over at Verve. I absolutely adored this courage sentiment and quickly wanted to put it to good use. Cristina told me about the fabulous masking paper from Eclipse and I hadn't had a chance to use it yet. I loved how Aimes masked off the banner on her card here instead of creating a layer and I decided to do the same. I used Erin's favorite PTI Wine Die to create the banner mask, masked it off and then inked away with Ranger Distress Ink. I then simply added the sentiment and the butterfly die and I'm ready to roll for this week's CASE Study challenge. Have to say I'll be trying this layout again. I loved Joy's inspiration card below!
