CASE'ing Olga

Hi blogger friends!  

Since I began my "hobby/passion" creating cards I have become true friends with many people I have never met in person.  It's my dearest hope that one day my path crosses with each one of them.  I'd like to tell you about one of those friends.

In May of 2009, I found StampTV and poking through the gallery there I found some great inspiration and one day I found the courage to post a card I'd created.  The very first comment I received on my card came from Olga Jewel.  Her comment was so positive and she gave me so much encouragement - so I posted another one and several more after that.  Olga always commented - wow, what a wonderful feeling to be followed and encouraged. 

Olga is a DT for Heartfelt Creations and the other day, she posted a fabulous card on her blog and I just had to CASE the technique she used on the black CS.  Please go over there and give my friend Olga some love.  My card has nowhere near the details and the fabulous design that Olga's has but I hope it shows a reasonable attempt at an honorable CASE.  

Thanks for the encouragement and the inspiration, Olga....HUGS.  You're dear creative friend.


I'm also entering this card is the Card Patterns Sketch #126

Details:  CS:  Gina K Design Pure Luxury, DP:  Basic Grey, "Curio" and a music piece from my stash.  Spellbinder Pendant "Fleur De Lis".  Sentiment stamp:  "With This Ring" by Rupa Shevde for Gina K Design. Mulberry paper rose from Boutique Fleur.
