Nikki CASE'd

We're half way through our 'CASE' theme at ABC Christmas Challenge and I've cased one of my teamies' cards this time (instead of one of my own, d'oh!!).  I chose quite a C&S design which I usually find hard to do, but I really loved the cross-stitched twine accents on this layout.

I've used an image that I've had for a while, but I don't think I've used her yet.  I've added a few pearls and some sewing around the borders of each layer, but otherwise the layout is unchanged. No ribbons, no flowers, yet I am still pleased with the result.

See, I don't need to splatter it with embellies after all.

Well, not every time anyway.

Here's my card ...

And below is Samantha's fab original card that I CASE'd.  Her layout was really lovely to work with, and I've never hand stitched on a card before.  I love Samantha's C&S style and in the main I did copy her card apart from the pearls and a bit of stitching. Thanks Samantha for the lovely inspiration, however, I have to apologise as she doesn't like pink (I know, she's quite clearly a crazy lady) but I just had to sneak some pink in my version I'm afraid!
