PTI Princess Challenge no.5--CASEing another member


Cheryl issed the challenge for the most recent PTI Princesses. We are to CASE the next member alphabetically in our group. So I found a card of Diane's to CASE on her blog. Diane is amazing at creating several cards at once. You should see how many she posts each time! When does she find the time? Each time I thought I had decided on one of her cards, I saw several more that looked inspiring! Finally, I picked THIS one.

Isn't it pretty? I liked the white embossed flower, but since I don't have that set I tried to find another solid image that would work for the springy theme she had going on.
Rubber boots always signal spring to me (MUD!), so I thought the boot image from Green Thumb would be perfect. I also had to use the new Hawaiian Shores color and some of my favorite Orange Zest to complete my color combo. Don't you love the flower buttons? I added in some "old-school" piercing to finish it off! (remember when piercing was on every card in blogland? *grin* I like it no matter what anyone says.)

Thanks for stopping by today!

LOL! I was JUST thinking yesterday about how I use to always pierce my projects. :) Anyway... I LOVE your take on the card! It's very fresh and springy... and it makes me smile! That decorative edge on the bottom really makes such a huge difference! When you download the file, do you basically just trace and cut the shape?

Definitely hit the nail on the head with this one Dana - it just sings 'Spring'!! Great colours, I'm starting to like Orange Zest more and more now so loving the little flashes of it on this card! That Hawaiian Shores felt (and I presume buttons as well) though ... *drool* ...
