WCC16 CASE the Occasions Catalog

http://watercoolerchallenges.blogspot.ca/

Are you ready for another Watercooler Challenge??
I sure hope so.
This challenge is a "CASE the Occasions Catalog" challenge.

My card actually has 2 sources of inspiration.
The first is the "Celebrate" card on page 10 of the 
Occasions 2015 catalog.  I really like the look of
 Coastal Cabana, combined with black and white
(the card on page 10 uses a Bermuda Bay).
The other source of inspiration is a flap card by
LeeAnn Greff at flowerbug.typepad.com.
 I used the Big Day SAB set to emboss white embossing powder
on the new Chalkboard card stock (p 25) and then colored
the embossed image with Blendabilities.
The image is punched out with a 2 1/2 inch circle punch.
I used the Starburst Framelits (love them!) to create
a cutout on the card front.
 The image was then layered on to the Whisper White strip inside the card.

Were I to make another one of these cards, 
I would used a lighter Blendabilities color,
as opposed to the Crumb Cake that turned out so dark.
I hope that you enjoyed this project!

Hi Jackie, I love your card and think your Crumb Cake is a great colour, especially if it's going to a man. It's a wonderful contrast to the lighter, more feminine colours of the card on page 10. I really like the way you've made that cut-out with your Starburst Framelits---way to make your card a WOW compared to your CASE.
