Time Out Challenge 24 we're CASEing Kylie!

Kylie Purtell's darling card with the pink flowers is adorable...


one hitch though... you already know I'm pink-challenged, and I just really don't have any smallish flower dies as cute as these.  Having just finished coloring a few PTI Botanical Blocks, I'd love to use one... hey! There's my "twist" - stamped instead of die-cut flowers, and yellows instead of pinks!  [wow... that's a bit of a stretch.] But wait!!! Look that's exactly what the fabulous guest DT Sarah did - kind of?!!


I created the embossed area with a Stampin' Up folder, leaving an un-embossed area for stamping the sentiment - a favorite from Technique Tuesday.  My tag was actually a Reverse Confetti tag, partially cut to include the tag top, but with a straight edge, which I then pinked to mimic the look of the embossing.

Thanks, Kylie, for inspiring me to use a tag on a card.  Something I don't do very often. Very nice to CASE you at Time Out!

Love how you colored that botanical block and put it on a tag. And, the partial embossing really makes that tiny sentiment shine. Why do I wear out my pinterest button whenever I come by your blog?
