CASEing the Idea Book and Catalog

I have to be honest, I never use the SU! IB&C for ideas...no reason, I just don't. I was looking through the catalog today and decided I need to really look at the projects in there, and WOW there are some really beautiful cards and other things. So, I decided to CASE one, and I chose a simple card because I'm not so good at doing simple cards. Like everything else in my life I have to make it complicated, but often that is so unnecessary.
Anyway, here is the card I CASE'd, it is from page 109 in the IB&C. I change the colors a little, and instead of using bleach I embossed the image (I don't have bleach), but otherwise it is the same card.


I'm not really sure why, but the textured cardstock doesn't photograph very well (I know the problem can't be the photographer, LOL)

Supplies
Card Stock:  Elegant Eggplant Textured Cardstock, Confetti White
Ink:  Elegant Eggplant, VersaMark
Stamps:  Just Believe
Accessories:  Very Vanilla 5/8" Satin Ribbon, Color Spritzer Tool, White Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Powder Pals, Heat Tool, SNAIL

Tips
  1. When using the VersaMark be careful about leaving fingerprints on the card stock.  I don't know if you can see it, but in the upper left corner of the card is one of my big ole fingerprints.
  2. The Confetti White was torn by hand, and the edge was distressed a little more by hand.
  3. I used Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write marker with the Color Spritzer Tool and spritzed over the Elegant Eggplant cardstock and the Confetti Cream.
I would love to know what you think.  Thanks for looking today, and I hope you have a great day.
