Birthday Mushrooms



This was the last week that Jen Rzasa was the muse over at CASE Study which is a real bummer as I love her work.  She was part of the reason I finally got around to playing along with CASE Study at all. I think in the past I've found a lot of the cards very busy and was unsure how to CASE it in my style (which is silly really because there are/were several great CAS cardmakers on the DT like Cristina Kowalczyk, Christina MacLarenAmy Wanford and Debby Hughes).  I'm going to try and stick with it when the new muse comes along though no matter what her style!  I'm also going to enter this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge - who couldn't use a SSS gift certificate these days?
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill Basics
Stamps:  (Mushrooms from Forest Whimsy) Paper Smooches, (Sentiment from Think Big Favourites #7) PTI
Inks:  (VersaMark Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Real Read, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo) Stampin' Up

I've thought the same thing, except I never made time to play. I might take on your challenge too, to play no matter who the muse is. This card is wonderful, I love those mushrooms lined up in their merry colors.

These rainbow mushrooms are so cute! Perfect with the scoring, too. And if I don't win that SSS gift certificate... well, then it's okay if you do. :D

The little mushrooms are so cute! I love how you scored the cardstock, too. That's a great idea to try the new muse no matter what (not that I have any idea what you or I am talking about!) LOL!

I adore those little mushrooms, and the scoring is the perfect touch. I read your comments about CASE study, and I totally agree. I'm so sorry I missed casing many of Jen's creations. I love her style.

How did I miss this card? Love your colorful shrooms! And a bold sentiment on a crisp white background is just the best, isn't it? Great card Jen!

congratulations on your CASE study win. Yesterday was my first visit to your blog, and I fell in love with your card, too and immediately cased it. http://cards-by-the-sea.blogspot.com/2012/02/for-cath-sans-cha-with-love-blog-hop.html
