Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest - Janneke de Jong

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

We are hopping with a special guest - The talented Janneke de Jong from the Netherlands. Janneke has only been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator since 2013 and managed to place 10th in the Top 10 Demonstrators in the Netherlands last year (what an achievement).

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

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

To checkout Janneke's card in more detail click here.

Here is my version:

My card uses the Botanical Blooms stamp set to create the background and I've used Whisper White, So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Wild Wasabi & Garden Green for my colour palette.

By including a flower, my card had a more feminine feel. However, if I was to remove the flower and use Wild Wasabi as my card base instead of So Saffron, I think it would give the card a more masculine feel.

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. 
Just scroll to the bottom of my post, leave your comment and you will put a smile on my dial :)

Don't forget to continue the hop all the way around to see what the very creative Crazy Crafters team have come up with.
