ODBDSLC191 - Secret Admirer

The latest challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBDSLC191) is a Secret Admirer challenge. Make a card that CASE's someone or a card that you admire!

If you're like me (before I was enlightened) and don't know exactly how or what it means to CASE a card - it means to Copy and Share Everything (or I've also seen it written as Copy and Selectively Edit). So, as Chris Olsen explained to me, you can take the layout, style or CASE the whole card changing a couple of elements and make it your own. Your card should not look exactly the same as the one you're CASE'ing.

This is my card:
Elizabeth Whisson, Our Daily Bread Designs, Watering Can, ODBD Watering Can Die, All Occasion Sentiments, ODBD Beautiful Borders die, Heart and Soul Collection, thinking of you, flowers, handmade card, copics, Copic markers, copic

I have used Our Daily Bread Designs Watering Can and All Occasion Sentiments stamps. I've also used the Watering Can die, one of the Beautiful Borders dies and the gorgeous Heart and Soul Collection (also from ODBD) to CASE this card by Kathy Jones. Kathy's website was one of the first ones I ever came across in the cardmaking world - I am in awe of all of her cards (so it was hard just picking one to CASE)! Kathy was also the person who originally inspired me to start using Copic markers - and I'm so glad I did!

For more inspiration for this challenge please visit my talented design team sisters:
