Secret Admirer Case

Since it is February and we are acknowledging national heroes (President’s Day) or people who are special to us (Valentine’s Day) in the U.S. , the challenge team at Our Daily Bread Designs is challenging us to acknowledge and case a crafter or a creation we admire changing just two elements to make it our own.

I am always drawn to the work of Chris Olsen, so I chose to case this card of hers.  I changed the color and the dp to make it my own. 

Cardstock:  Truly Yours – Cream card base; Bazzill – Butter Cream, Petunia, Natural Kraft
Decorative Paper:  Lost & Found – Blush 6x6 pad
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – Grunge Cross, Never Give Up; Hero Arts – Designer Fabric Background
Inks, Stains and Paints:  Memento – Rich Cocoa; Versafine – Onyx Black; Ranger Distress Ink – Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Victorian Velvet; Adirondack Alcohol Ink – Shell Pink
Dies, Punches & Embossing Folders:  Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Spellbinders – Fleur de Lis Rectangles, Petite Scalloped Ovals; Our Daily Bread Designs – Grunge Cross Die
Accessories & Other Stuff:   American Crafts – White Satin Ribbon (hand dyed); Prima Pearls (dyed to match); Vintage Lace

I'm honored to have had this card selected for the Shining Light Award from Our Daily Bread Designs
