Cupcake Wishes

This card is CASEd from a card featured in the new Occasions Mini Catalog (p. 5). When the creativity just isn't flowing, CASEing is the solution! If you're not familiar with CASEing - it stands for "copy and share everything." Find a card or a project that catches your eye, use it as a starting point and then let things happen. In this case, I used the same color cardbase and the general idea for the image panel. But I changed the other colors, changed the image, changed the ribbon, moved the sentiment and didn't use a button. By the time you finish, you've created something uniquely yours!

So the next time you find yourself stuck or just plain uninspired, use someone else's creation as your inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card! Love that watercoloring. By the way, if it wasn't for "CASING" I'd have no talent at all : )
