CASEing Joy

I saw that Joy Taylor was the Featured Stamper over at Splitcoaststampers on the 5th of January.  We were encouraged to view Joy's photos and CASE one of her cards.   I chose THIS card of Joy's and came up with this one

I made my background by smooching some card through a mixture of silver glimmer mist and Victorian Velvet distress ink that I had left over from dying some ribbon.  It is hard to see on this photo but it really shimmers for real.  I die cut the Memory Box die with some textured cream card.  The filigree butterfly was from the same cream card and the base butterfly from some cardstock scraps from a wax paper resist technique I've done recently.  The sentiment is from our sponsor ~ Hero Arts.  Note it has had some surgery so I could stamp each work separately.

I love the beautiful work Joy does and was very pleased with how my interpretation turned out.

Have been off work for the last day and half with a chest infection.  I HATE summer colds especially when they turn into infections.  On antibiotics now, so hoping that fixes it.  

take care and thanks for visiting.
