Less is More week 114-CASe it

Hi everyone are you enjoying the lovely weather at last! We are off to Portsmouth next weekend and hoping for good weather but Charlie enjoyed himself yesterday on Portsdown Hill with daddy:)

 A very happy little man who loved watching the birds and getting dizzy!

This weeks challenge over at Less is More is to CASE either Chrissie or Jen's card. 

This week we are having a challenge not previously employed at "Less is More".
We have only two sample cards this time as we would like you to choose one (or both if you feel so inclined)  and CASE IT/them.
There could be a variety of ways that this could be achieved... ie use of the colours, the layout, the subject matter, technique or the complete card. Please state the inspiration for your CASE.

I decided to have a go at Chrissie's technique but may come back later to case Jen's card as I love the label with the banner:)
Anyway come and see what I came up with:

I used SU Everything Eleanor stamps (my favourite) with grey versamark and Su Perfectly Plum. The letters are a sizzix die cut. Three pearls to cover up a tiny splodge!!

Thanks for visiting me I love to read your comments:)

Chrissie said...

Just got back from my Rhine cruise (or wine cruise as Darnell so eloquently put it... how right she was!) and have been delighted by all the fab cases of our cards this week so far.
This is terrific, the colours look superb Val!
Looks as though Charlie had lots of fun too.
Thanks so much
