Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Dena Rekow

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

We are hopping with a special guest - The very creative Dena Rekow from the United States.

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

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

The greens I used for my card were chosen from the 2017-19 In Colors, which are the latest Colour Inkspiration challenge colours #45, gotta love when a challenge helps you make up your mind :) 


As you can see my layout is very similar to Dena's. I went with only 2 greens, Tranquil Tide & Lemon Lime Twist.

I kept this super simple and only used 1 stamp set: Tropical Chic (this is pretty unusual for me because I tend to mix and match images and sentiments from different sets) and to keep it Clean and Simple, I resisted the temptation to add some ribbon or embellishments.

If you are new to stamping, this card is definitely one to try as you don't need many supplies and it is super quick and easy. #simplestamping
