Can you case it? Challenges #101

So I can finally reveal my super exciting news and which is I recently become one of the newest members of the Design Team for the Can You Case It? Challenge blog!!

I was absolutely thrilled when I was asked to join them this year and I really couldn't wait to get started with them all. The girls are an amazing mix of cardmakers and I just hope I can do the team justice with my weekly creations.

And talking of weekly creations here is my first Design Team challenge, which is a colour challenge:

And here is my card, using Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.

I decided to give my water colouring another go, as it's something I'm always working on lol. I choose to use another new stamp set from the Occasions Catty (Goes live in 2 days!!) called Birthday Blooms. I used my aqua painter and a little... and I mean a little, bit of Blackberry Bliss to colour in the gorgeous bloom. Man, a little of that colour can go a long way. I then chose Lost Lagoon as my "blue" because it has such a green undertone and teamed perfectly with the leaves.

Did you also notice a couple of other NEW goodies? The gorgeous glittery Pool Party ribbon, is simply Divine in real life. so soft and really catches the light. And we are now stocking Wink of Stella, which really adds a WOW to everything it touches. I had never used it before, but can see this is quickly going to become an addiction as I just want to add it to everything!!

To finish the card off, I added some of the splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge in Crumb Cake and then a few with gold embossing powder just to mix up the textures.

The overall card feels very glamorous and classy, so guessing it will have to be sent to a classy lady. Might make a great a Mother's Day card.

So I hope I've inspired you to take part in the Can You Case It? Challenge, this week. Jump on over to the blog, take a look at what the other talented DT's have come up with and upload you creations there!

Happy Crafting,
