Inspired to Case

     The challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog was to case a card from a design of someone we follow or admire.  WOW - how tough is that!!!  Aside from the many blogs I follow, there are all the Design Team members at Our Daily Bread Designs whose work inspires me on a regular basis.
     For the first few days I was immobilized as I tried to think of what to do.  To try and make it easier on myself, I thought I would first choose a stamp, then go through the gallery and make a decision.  While choosing a stamp at least kept me more focused - there were too many beautiful cards to case.  I literally just chose a number in my head and counted out in the gallery to a was by Sandee Shanabrough.  Seeing her name brought a smile to my see last weekend I met Sandee at the Lawrenceville Stamp show - how fun to case a card she created.
     Sandee stamped her design and did no coloring, so that is what I did....I left off the ribbon and changed the size - as the challenge said change two things.....While this is monochromatic in design I really like how it turned out.  I considered coloring the image (and in fact made one using my Copics) but stamped a second to use on this card.
