For the TGIF challenge this week there is a real twist to the "anything goes". The designers get to create their "anything goes" cards while those participating in the challenge choose a designer's card to CASE. Well, I chose a brand new member of the design team to CASE, Maria Willis. Her card simply "spoke" to me and I had such fun following the layout and creating my own version.
Now I'm house-sitting over at my daughter's while they're in Mexico and so I only brought a very limited bit of product. The only striped paper which I had was in the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series paper, a celebration of varied sizes of stripes and varying colours. It's gorgeous but it called for something tropical and so I turned to an Inkadinkado stamp set which I had on hand and used one of the adorable flamingos. For my sentiment, I turned to a Tim Holtz collection: Things/Talk.
My colours were also limited but I love the way the Berry Burst and the Tranquil Tide look against the designer paper. Actually I turned the designer paper and used the other side behind the sentiment because it had such a tropical feel.
I'm playing along with the TGIF challenge #140
