SIP53 CASing Sandy!

Happy Friday, peeps!  I've got a sweet little card today for a sweet friend of mine...she IS amazing...she just sent me a whole gallon of homemade maple syrup from upstate New York!  What a friend!  And since Cassidy has had a taste of real maple syrup on her pancakes, she is now a syrup snob...she won't eat anything else and gets mad if any of us eat "her" syrup!  SO...we have lots of syrup that should last us for a while!  So my card today is for her!  I am playing with the Stamp Ink Paper challenge, which is to CASE the designer!

SIP Case Challenge 53 800

OF COURSE I had to CASE my sweet friend Sandy!  I swooned when I saw this card!  You can see  the details of it on her blog here!

I started out by diecutting some sunflowers I had but then I remembered this sweet Decorate A Daisy set that retired a couple of years ago, so I inked it up with Crushed Curry and Basic Black and added a sentiment from Watercolor Wishes:

I did save the leaves I had cut from the sunflower die (Simon Says Stamp Radiant Sunflower) because I love the stitching and the detail; they complemented my stitched panel (Lil'Inkers) so nicely!

The gingham was stamped with a retired SU wheel that I took off the wheel and mounted on some EZ much easier to use that way!  And finally, I added some pretty green sequins from my stash!

I loved Sandy's card and I hope she likes my CASE of it!

Cassidy loves my nephew's dog Remy...she was throwing him a stick in our front yard when the sun was going down...the light and glowing greenery was so's really not captured in my photos as well as I would like!


 I am not sure who was more tired...Cassidy or the dog!  They both got a good workout!
