Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Mary Deatherage

What a fab week, getting to hop with Mary Deatherage AND playing with new catalogue products.  Love, love!  When the Crazy Crafters have a blog hop we invite international and much admired demonstrators and then CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) a project of theirs.  For today's hop I've picked this card of Mary's. 

I love layout so, in usual me style, I went CAS (Clean and Simple) and came up with this:

It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I clear embossed the dandelions to make them shine and stand out on the card just a little bit.

For contrast I stamped the sentiment in black.  The strip of Pool Party was put on with a sponge brayer. I stuck down two pieces of scrap card over the top of my card to create the border lines when sponging.

You'll love what everyone else has done in their CASEing of Mary so hop over to their blogs now.
