Time Out #75 CASEing Sweet Kobylkin

It has been an age since I've played cards at Time Out!  Challenge #75 is a CASE challenge, and Sweet Kobylkin's card is as sweet, and gorgeous, as it's creator ...  Ksenija, I'm making your card a true CASE - I've enjoyed our new IG friendship!

Here is Ksenija's card:


In my attempt to recreate those sweet little sprigs, I may have overdone it a tiny bit - my twist is white stamping on grey for the card-base,  and a tiny red strip of paper instead of embossing!

 
Thanks for popping in today!

Supplies:
 
SSS Fog cardstock, and white pigment ink
Mama Elephant: Freestyle Florals
Altenew:  Beautiful Day sentiment
Copics for coloring
Glossy accents for the red berries
PTI Poppy Red cardstock for tiny strip
Memento Tuxedo Black for stamping

Gorgeous CASE, Michele! Love the pops of red, the subtle stamping in the background, and the beautiful image and sentiment! Btw...I finally added the "Follow By Email" thingy-ma-jiggy to my blog ;) Especially for you, my sweet friend!

Gorgeous take on the card Michele, I can see how similar it is but it also is very individual as well!

Pretty darn sweet CASE, my friend. Now, you'd think that 'red and green' would equal Christmas... But not on this beauty. It just looks fresh and lovely. Love those stamps, too. Later, babe. Bev

Delicate, whimsical and so gorgeous, Michele ... love those those tiny dimensional red berries amid all the luscious green! You've taken Ksenija's card and made it very much your own ... and it's lovely! Delighted, as always, to have you playing along with us at Time Out, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)

It doesn't look overdone to me, Michele. I love the subtle background stamping and those red berries pop right off the card.

Barb Ghig said...

Oh, how pretty! Your Freestyle Florals were the perfect choice for your CASE of Ksenija's card, Michele! I love how you left the tips of the flowers and leaves without color...it adds to the airy feel of your design, and your stamped background is perfection! You are on a roll, girl...you really are :)

There's absolutely no overdoing here! It's a perfect CASE. I love the white on gray background. Your green leaves are colored so wonderfully, and I really love those glossy berries. Thanks for linking up and playing along with us at Time Out Challenges.

Love the white stamping on the grey and that sprig stamp is simply lovely, Michele!!!! I couldn't really figure out if its a few stamps that you have used so cleverly to form your cute branch, or if its one stamp - either way, it's just perfect for CASEing Ksenija's card!!!! I really like the way you have coloured your branch and the little red berries look good enough to eat!!!! ...and the red strip at the bottom completes the picture wonderfully!!!! A lovely CASE, my friend!!!!
