Case it - Helen


This week we're case-ing Helen's card that you can see above at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I quite enjoying these challenges. I don't case it completly just using some of the elements that appeal to me.
You can see in my card below that I've distress the edges and I've used the same layout as Helen. Also I've used a slight larger ribbon than you usually see on my cards.
I've used a different image choosing a cute one and I haven't used the water Spitz technique that Helen has used on her flower image.


I had to have flowers somewhere and I'm still re-loving my woodware daisy punches and the sentiment is Penny Black but once again I've used a square punch to make my banner shape can't believe how easy this is and why didn't I do before.
 I then took issue with the top corners I couldn't cope with all that empty space so it called for my faux brads which is the 1/4 inch circle punch, embossed on the back to give a dome shape and just a dot of silicone glue underneath to stick and keep their shape.
We have a fab prize this week of a Penny Black sentiment stamp and a mini ribbon kit from The Ribbon Girl, so I do have you can join. Don't forget to check how the rest of the team cased Helen card.
