The Spot Challenge #154 Case The Designer - Dena Rekow!

 Hi There!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  I love the Case the Designer Challenges we have over at The Spot and this week has to be my favorite!  It's the fabulous Dena Rekow!  

It seriously took me about 1 second to decide which of her fabulous designs to case!  When I saw her card last week for The One Step At A Time Blog Hop, my jaw literally dropped.. it was just so gorgeous!!  Here's her card that I am casing!

Isn't it absolutely amazing!! For the link to her blog post for that card.. click here

Here's my case for her card...

The card base was an 11" x 4-1/4" half sheet of Thick Basic White cardstock, stored at 5-1/2".  I used the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder to emboss the 4" x 5-1/4" layer of Basic White for the background. I used the folder with the planks running horizontally since I thought it gave it a "ship lap" feel.   On the Brilliant Wings die cut I used the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set.  I Loved the set that Dena used but I don't have it so I just pulled out one that I felt would work.  My flowers were stamped using Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, and Melon Mambo Inks.  The stamp set that I used for the Happy Birthday Sentiment was the Posted for You stamp Set.  I put the diecut in my Stamparatus so that I could stamp it more than once with my Memento Tuxedo Black ink if needed but ended up stamping it also in Versamark so that I could clear emboss it.  The embossing really helped it stand out! Oh and of course I had to add some splatters using my Wink of Stella and last but not least I added 3 Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to finish it up!

Here's the inside..

I used another of the larger Brilliant Wings Diecuts for the inside and the same stamps and colors that I used on the larger butterfly on the outside.  The sentiment "Celebrate" came from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
