Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Allison Okamitsu

I am so excited about today's blog hop because Allison Okamitsu is one of my all time favourite Stampin' Up designers.  So it's a real treat to be able to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) one of her designs.  So, here's the card of hers that I chose:

I started off thinking I'd use almost the same layout as Allison using the Bubbles and Fizz DSP that is one of the Sale-A-Bration items you can choose free when you spend $90 in my store.  But as I worked on the card it took a different direction, as you can see.  That's the fun of designing and crafting!  

I got my trusty Paper Snips out to fussy cut the bottles from the DSP before I winged the drinking straw by just eyeballing it.  Not bad, eh?  It's finished off with gold metallic enamel shapes for a bit of bling. 

Check out which of Allison's designs everyone else chose to CASE:

Here's everything you need to make this card yourself. 
Just click on any item to be taken straight to it in my store.

Happy crafting,
