Waltzingmouse Blog Party - Spring Flowers

**For todays Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge Post, please scroll down.**

Today is Waltzingmouse Stamps April Blog Party and I have a very quick post.  My son is getting married in two days and I am a bit frazzled.  Lots of last minute things to get done, but I did make a card for the party.  When I saw this month's theme of flowers...my immediate thought was of WM Sewing Box Hugs and the really cute flowers in that set.  Within a few days, my friend Joyce of Cards by the Sea posted a card using Sewing Box Hugs that I could not get out of my mind, in fact, as soon as I saw it I knew I was going to CASE her card.  And by CASE it, I mean almost identical!  Here is Joyce's cute card:
Joyce's Card
Pretty hard to beat, don't you think?  I didn't even try, just came as close as I could to it with the stamps I had at home.

I love those flowers popping out from within the polaroid frame.  Such a great idea Joyce had with this one.  In addition to the Sewing Box Hugs flower stamps, I used the stems from Pic-nic Patterns and the beautiful scripted sentiment from Folk Art Labels #25.

Thanks Joyce for the inspiration this month...I promise next month once the wedding is behind us, I will come up an idea all on my own!

Cathy--I am honored that you cased my card. I love your take on it. Brilliant idea to use that beautiful plaid paper for your frame--did you make that? And, I love how you did your stems and impressed your background.

This quilted set always reminds me of you - I haven't seen it in a while on your blog and it still looks amazing! I love the plaid too!

Renee said...

Love those plaid, stitched blooms...
and what a great card to CASE! :)
It was brilliant to have them out of the polaroid...
like a snapshot of the garden!

When I saw the thumbnail I thought you just cased Joyce's card because you loved it as much as I did. I is a big favorite of mine.
Well, I love the card you made with the inspiration from Joyce! The stitched flowers look wonderful in the plaid frame. You still need to link it up!

Pretty waffle embossed background and I love the plaid photo framing! A lovely case of Joyce's card!

Love your CASE!! The texture compliments the stitched flowers perfectly.

Great job and amazing Case :) I love this background and photo framing :)flowers look so sweet :)

Cathy your card is beautiful, and remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Honestly you used Joyce as your muse and your card is very Cathy! :) I love both of them.

Cathy, you are amazing! I love how you changed up Joyce's card and made it your own. Both of you are so creative! That plaid for your frame is so fun and the embossed background, just perfect.

Love that cool tartan frame and the little flowers bursting out. Really love the waffle texture of the background - looks like fabric and goes so well with the theme of the card.
