JAI #122 : JUST ADD .... DELYS

This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is to CASE one of the gorgeous creations of Delys Cram, one of the fearless leaders of our Design Team.  Scrolling through Delys' blog brought up loads of cards I could happily have CASEd, but I ended up settling on this one.  I have barely used my Posy Punch stamp set - it was high time to get it inky!

I chose the colour combination of Poppy Parade, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake, to provide a completely different look to Delys' card.  This was intentional, because when I CASE someone's work, I am pretty literal in my interpretation, so I had to do something a little different!

Here's my version (with, I might add, not a single sponged edge in sight!):

Stamps: Posy Punch, Grunge Rock
Card: Crumb Cake, Tangerine Tango textured, Whisper White
DSP: Poppy Parade Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade and Tangerine Tango stampin' pads, Versamark inkpad
Other: Lace Ribbon border punch, Fancy Flower punch, Clear Rhinestone brad (gem removed), stampin' dimensionals, white embossing powder, 3/4" circle punch, paper snips

I love it, and might just have to play some more with this stamp set, I think!

Please make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's samples over at Just Add Ink.  We'd love to have you join us in this week's challenge!
