CASE-ing Greta

Happy Monday!

I have a card to share today to help celebrate my friend, Greta's 1st year of blogging. She has asked us to CASE one of her cards from last year, and as I was looking through her blog posts, I decided instead to head over to her Flickr photostream. It was a faster way for me to view her beautiful cards. When I found this gorgeous snowflake card, I knew right away it was the one

 
Here is my take:



With warmer weather (hopefully) on the way soon, I thought it would be fun to take her wintery card and create a more spring-like one! 

After finishing, I realized Greta had not actually blogged about her card, so I sure hope it's okay that I CASED this one!

Thanks for the fun challenge, Greta! And big congrats on your one year blogiversary! :)

Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your week!

Oh your spring version is fabulous. I love them both. The texture and colors are awesome.

Thank you so much for taking time to help me celebrate, Barb! Your sweet comments when I first began posting cards in the Flickr group have a lot to do with my moving on to a blog. You probably don't remember, but you sent me my first Flickr mail (I hadn't even realized there was such a thing!)to say you'd CASED my card. I was amazed & thrilled! LOVE your Spring take on my card--you've reminded me a favorite card can be re-done for another season--I need to do that!

Hello Barb
You have picked a card that is perfect for you Barb, and what a wonderful recreation. Where as Greta chose cool colours you opted for warmth.
Your butterflies look wonderful, creating a playful and happy feeling, it has energy and movement, all within the genre of CAS.
How perfect!
