Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest - Cindy Schuster

Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest who is part of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team - The amazing and very talented Cindy Schuster.    So exciting :)

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Cindy's cards.

Here is the card of Cindy's that I chose to CASE:

I really loved the striped edges of Cindy's card along with the flowers surrounding the sentiment in the centre of the card. To checkout Cindy's card in more detail click here.

Here is my version:

I chose Flirty Flamingo as the main colour for my card with a touch of Emerald Envy. The flower images are from the Blooms & Wishes stamp set and are stamped on Whisper White card stock.

My sentiment (also from Blooms & Wishes) is heat embossed in white on some Flirty Flamingo cardstock, which has been cut using the 2nd largest Circle from the new Stitched Shapes framelits.

For the edges of my card I used the Flirty Flamingo diagonal striped sheet from the 2016-2018 In Colour Designer Series Paper Stack.

To add a little sparkle, I have used some Silver Metallic thread and a couple of randomly placed Silver sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my creation.

If you enjoyed my card, it would make my day if you left me a comment below :)
