Day # 3 Case Challenge with Joy

Hi everyone!

Today is the last day of the challenge with Joy. I'm a little sad that it's ending. We've both had such fun doing this!

Don't forget about my little giveaway. If you leave a comment on all three days of the challenge, you have a better chance of winning. If you've missed Day #1, you can find it here, with all the giveaway info. And if you missed Day #2, you can find it here.

So let's get on with today's challenge! Here is Joy's beautiful card:

I love the simple design, gorgeous, distressed background and beautifully colored flower!


My take uses the same design with the same flower, in a different color. I also used the Magical Background stamp from Hero Arts and lightly stamped it onto my distressed panel.


I added an extra flower, both colored with Copics, and a different sentiment from the Hero Arts Truly Appreciated set.

I cannot wait to head over to Joy's blog now to see what she's created for this last day! Please join me!

Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback which both Joy and I have received from all of you this week! I also want to thank Joy for inviting me to do this. It sure is easier for me to make a card, when I have amazing inspiration from someone as talented as Joy! So, Thank you, my friend! Let's do this again sometime!

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for the visit! :)
