Chair Trio

Hello Friends & Followers!  Happy Friday!  I have a ton of ideas I hope to effectuate later, but for now I will start off showing you a card I created for this week's Free-for-Friday Challenge at Stamp TV which was to CASE DT member Cathy Tidwell, changing at least 2 things about her card; an intimidating task, her gallery is impressive!  So I poked around a bit and found this card in Cathy's gallery and knew it would be the one I would be CASEing.  I have the idea of 'embossing' in my head today anyway because it was not only the Free for All Friday Challenge at SCS (to make an embossed image take center stage) but it was also the focus of this week's CAS-ual Friday Challenge 16 as well.  So I decided one of the things I would change about Cathy's card was the colors and borrowed the blueberry, bubble gum and pea pod color palette from Play Date Cafe Challenge 95 :
and created this card:


The chairs and sentiment are from 'Fine Furnishings' and 'Fine Furnishings Additions' by Gina K. Designs and they were cut out and embossed using Cuttlebug's Textile EF.  Sweet and simple right?
So this little card fulfilled the requirements of four challenges:


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!
