Craft Along With Me - Session#3: Use Stuff That Has Never Been Touch

 Hello, Crafty Folks!

I recently started crafting (remotely) with a few of my friends.  We used to take turns hosting the crafting sessions, but I have been asked to be the permanent host.  We meet on Tuesday evenings for what we call crafting and craziness.   This week's theme was "Use Stuff That Has Never Been Touched!"

Every element used in creating these cards, except my Maker's Mart and Spellbinder dies, has been in my stash (untouched) for over 10 years. 

Be You - Birthday Card
I created this card during the crafting session!  The sessions are fun because we use our stash.  The goal is to get as close to the "challenge" card as possible without copying it exactly!

We follow basic CASE rules.  You must change at least three things.  You can even change the shape of the card, although most of us choose to use the same shape.  That makes seeing the "original" project in our designs easier.

The Challenge Card
As the host, I had to create the challenge card first, and then create a CASE of my own card during the crafting session!  You can find the blog post for the "Style" card HERE
My first change was the palette.  I decided to use pastels!  
 I changed the arrangement of my geometric shapes and added splatter.  I also added a few additional plant stalks.
Other Changes:
Embossing Folder
No frame around the Circle Die Cut
I colored my tulip heads and some plant stems with Baby Blue and Mint Green Liquid Pearls
Simple Sentiment
