Time Out: CASing Virginia!


Wow!  Time is certainly flying!  We're on our fourth challenge at Time Out and this week our challenge is to CASE the fabulous Virginia Lu.  Virginia is amazingly talented, but more importantly is one of the kindest bloggers in blogland.  Her love of life and her family is very clear.  She has so many talents from creating cards to be an amazing cook. She quite simply is a gem.  So...I was thrilled to have the opportunity to CASE her for this challenge. I mean heck out her gorgeous card above! Wow!  Her use of color and the perfect extra elements is always spot on.

For my card, you can see I followed her layout and the use of florals.  I also tried to pick up the texture of the thread in her cards by using burlap for a bit of texture.

I am sure you'll be inspired by Virginia's card...be sure to take some time out to play with us at Time Out!
