KSSC #30- casing the experts!!!!

The challenge this month with the Kitchen Sink Crew was to case one of the design team's great cards from the year. I found this one on Connie's blog for September 26, 2010. I photographed my card to the left of the computer screen beside Connie's. I had that design paper but changed the colors somewhat and made the kittens a different color. I think Connie's was an easel card, and mine is just a plain jane card. Earlier this week I made an anniversary card from one I found on my sister, Lynn's blog. I thought it would be perfect for my parent's 61st anniversary, which is January 1. The vintage look of it seemed to depict the 61 years!! Sorry I didn't photo my card next to hers but her multilayering skills put mine to shame. (Not that I can keep up with any of those Kitchen Sink girls!!!)

I did mine in tan and brown tones of ink. I embossed the cardstock and used my Brillance Platinum Planet ink pad to rub over the embossed pattern. Love how that turned out.

I hear there is going to be some real fun New Year's Eve over at Kitchen Sink. It's worth staying home New Year's Eve I think! What better way to bring in the new year than to stamp with my internet buddies? Hope you come join in on the fun!!!
