HLS CASE The Designer and Stamplorations CASEplorations

When I saw the beautiful card Joyce Mehrberg made for us to CASE at Happy Little Stampers I knew I would make a card.  It's really a near copy of Joyce's but why mess with perfection.

You can tell by the watermark that this one is mine, using the same Altenew set but coloring with Distress Inks.  Here's Joyce's card.
There is a slight variation in the flower and leaf color because she stamped the layers on hers.  I love this technique and the stamp set so I can see making more of these in different colors and with different flowers.

Since we're CASEing designers, I decided to CASE this one by Donna Mikasa for Stamplorations CASEplorations challenge.
I didn't do a near copy of this one.  I didn't even come close.  Seeing it here I guess I'm a little closer than I thought.
A sprig from MFT Fall Florals in rainbow color with a little splatter and a CB sentiment white embossed on dark gray is my interpretation of Donna's card.  When you have two such talented ladies to CASE, the job is intimidating but easy.

I'm glad you dropped by.

Eek, Bobby. What a treat to stop by for a visit and find that you have CASEd my card!! I absolutely love everything about it. You picked a wonderful color, and I like that you colored instead of stamping. Aren't those Altenew flowers just dreamy? Love your rainbow card as well. Thanks so much for playing along at HLS Case the Designer and for CASEing my card.
