For my card I chose to CASE a super sweet fellow crafter and "friend I haven't met, yet" named Brenda Urbanik. I "met" Brenda through the Hero Arts Flickr group and over the last year or so we have exchanged many cards and emails. I can always count on Brenda to leave me a lovely comment on whatever I post on my blog. As I was cruising through Brenda's blog one day a few weeks ago I came across a beautiful Valentine's card that Brenda had created for a challenge. The card is a perfect example of CAS (clean & simple) one of my favorite ways to make a card. I immediately knew that was the card I wanted to CASE. Brenda's card uses a simple frame, a heart die cut and a sentiment. I changed the heart to a butterfly and added a couple of layers to my card, but still kept things pretty simple. I used the ODBD sets God's Love, Flourished Christian Symbols and Grunge Butterfly. The frame was created using Spellbinders Square Plain & Scalloped dies. The color combo comes from CR84FN and so I will be popping my card into that challenge. I hope you will take the time to click over to Brenda's blog and leave her some love!
