"CASEing a Crafter: Welcome Home."
I was inspired by THIS card, designed by the amazing Iwona Palamountain. Love the sketch, and applied it to my own card. The strip of black punched edging is an Iwona-touch, as is the black die-cut sentiment.
The cork circle was sitting in my bits-and-pieces box, and seemed a good fit with the ADORABLE bee (Circle Friends / Simon Says Stamp). It's the first time I'm using the bee in the stamp set. You can see two other cards I made with other animals from the set HERE. (By the way, I don't like those cards as much as I like this one.)
I'm entering my friend Darnell's NBUS Challenge #2. She challenges us to use "never-before-used-schtuff". Heck, we've all got loads of that kind of stuff, don't we?
