Casing a card from Alice

     Hello my sweet friends!
     You know, more and more I am amazed at how in the world those of you who have small children find the time to play in our crafty world.  My baby is grown and self sufficient so I can't use her as an excuse for a lack of time.  No way are you going to hear me admit that I'm a bit disorganized.  LOL
     I have a card for you today featuring an image from Whimsy and Stars Studio called Balloon Girl.  Can you guys tell I've been practicing my CAS simple skills.  :-)  There's a reason for that I'll be sharing with your soon.
     If by chance there's some reason you have not been privileged to view the work of my ADFD team mate, Alice Wertz, I encourage you to check out her blog.  Alice has the most gorgeous coloring and crafting style that is very unique to her and VERY appealing to me.  This card is my attempt to case her style.
     I hope you have a fantastic Wednesday.  I'm off to finish my catch up visiting, make some cards, and hopefully find time to watch an episode of Inspector Lewis on Masterpiece Theater.


Supplies

Paper:  My Mind's Eye "Miss Caroline--Dolled Up", Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card
Stamp:  Whimsy and Stars Studio "Balloon Girl", Studio G clear stamp
Ink:  Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura White Gelly Roll pen
Tools:  Nestabilities labels Eighteen, Martha Stewart deep edge punch
Miscellaneous:  Hug Snug Seam Binding, Patine Glimmermist, Kraft Outlet Hang Tag String, button from my stash, Stardust Stickles
