A Rose By Any other Name

Morning all.

Do you ever have those days when possibly the confidence you have is slightly more than what you really should have??? i think I suffered an episode similar to this not so long ago. I had the very bright idea (not) to try and CASE a card by the uber talented Teneale Williams. I had some 'gorjus' rose based paper in my stash with this particular card in mind....all I had to do was keep the card layout as is and the substitute different colours. This is the card that I had in mind. I was happy so far.

I got all the elements guesstimated and cut out, and thought it would also be a good idea to make one the same as the original, so then when that went together OK....I could tackle the one in different colours. Here is my version of Teneale's original.

I basically had it all the same with the exception of the white doodle dots around the Choc Chip frame. No matter how I measured and double checked...I was not satisfied with the result. I therefore went to a "ticket punch" cornering on the white mat with pearls.

There are alot of dimensionals on this card....perhaps one of the "highest" cards I have done but I think it looks OK IRL. I also placed a dimensional under the sentiment banner to give it a little lift and support.

I do have the other version in pieces...and in 2 versions of co-ordinating colours, but that will wait for another day.

Thanks for dropping by...hope to see you again soon.
