Marisa, aka whiterockmama, aka MamaRitzi was our Featured Stamper earlier this month. I'm late out of the gate as usual, but it was her birthday last week. I decided to CASE another one of the many fabulous cards in her gallery as a birthday card. I chose this card as my inspiration as it was a comment I made about the snow in the background of her photo that resulted in our first round of back and forth messages. Two years later and all I can see when I look outside is snow, snow snow - how about you Marisa!?! Are the cherry trees out your way in blossom yet?
Things I changed: Different stamps; made it a birthday card; added wet & dry embossing and score lines. And, since it was for Marisa, I had to be sure to include Verve stamps & Swiss Dots!
I perused this week's Inspiration Challenge website too and used the Nurse Barbie as inspiration: the pleats on her dress are represented in the score lines; I have included polka dots and I used the black/red/white colour combo.

I have been remiss in my gallery gazing, or there is NO WAY I would have missed this amazing beauty!! I absolutely LOVE it, MamaIzzy :) You have used Swiss Dots to perfection and I'm loving the scoring you added. Way to flash some Verve flowers and your touches of ribbon are perfection. A true beauty - thank you SO much!! Can't wait to see it in real life :)
I can't believe it has been two years already! No snow in our back yard now - but the Ark is due to sail by any day now - ugh!! Mind you it may get grounded in the moss that is having a hay day spreading across the back yard - double ugh!! Ready to trade you snow for rain.
Hugest (((hugz))) my friend!!!
