CASE-ing Christmas #6: Ellen

Welcome to CASE-ing Christmas! This is a weekly challenge devoted to the holiday season all year 'round and today we're starting Challenge #6.

Here's how you play along. Each week you'll be given you a card to CASE and ... you CASE it! It's as easy as that. If you've never CASEd a card before, here's how you do it:
  • Look at the photo of the card to CASE; 
  • Be inspired by some elements of the card - the colours, layout, image, embellishments, etc 
  • Make a card based on that inspiration and link it up at CASE-ing Christmas Challenge Blog by Noon (Central) / 6pm (UK) on Thursday,  12th February 2015
And that's all there is to it. Our CASE card this week is this gorgeous creation by Ellen Parker. Lots of ideas here and I can't wait to see how this project inspires you.

The "O" in Joy reminds me of Christmas pudding... and there was no turning back! I'm taking the colours, the holly and the CAS look of Ellen's card to make my version of her awesome card.

The image and sentiments are by Clearly Besotted Stamps. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny's Mistletoe Collection. Keeping it simple with just a few bling.

Here's a close-up. I've cut the images with coordinating dies and popped them up on some foam tape. Plenty of white space... more than I'm used to and it took strength not fuss and walk away. Phew!
