Day 2 Case Challenge with Joy

Hey there!

I am so sorry for posting this late! My computer is ancient and I was having difficulty getting it to work!

Before I share my card, I want to remind you to make sure and comment on each day of our challenge so you have a better chance at winning my little giveaway. If you missed my first post from Day 1, you can find it here and still comment. The giveaway info is there too.

Okay, so let's get started! Here is the card I chose to case from Joy today:



Isn't it just wonderful?! I love the pink and look at all those white dots she added to the Large Plaid Pattern! Love it! Can't say enough about her amazing coloring either!

I decided to change the colors this time but stayed with her same design. Why mess with perfection?! I know it looks like pink in the photo but it really is more of an orange color. I used the same Hero Arts Tall Flower image but used a different background stamp. It's called, Dots and Flowers, also from Hero Arts. I, of course, just had to add white dots!



Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're enjoying our little challenge! I'm jumping over to Joy's blog now, to see what she's created. Join me, won't you? And don't forget to come back on Friday for our final day! :)
