Another card for the Pony CASE Press exchange

Hi Everyone - well it looks very much like autumn has arrived.  Very overcast and chilly here today in Somerset with the forecast looking very much foreboding with lots of rain and storms later.  Brrrrr!

It was my turn to CASE a lovely card for the Pony CASE Press exchange game - such fun.  You get a photo of a card and have to CASE it and then send it off to the person whose card you've CASE'd - which could be anywhere in the world.  It's lovely getting a surprise card through the post - a great way of making new blogging friends as well.  Pop on over to Mynn's blog On a Stampage to have a look at the rules and while you're there put your name down to play along.

Here is the card that I CASE'd (isn't that bunny just too cute for words?):

and here is my card which has now been received by Lee Anne:

I've used the fab Crazy Birds stamp set from Tim Holtz and now I've finally got my hands on the matching dies decided to use them as well.  Oh, a little tip (one that Tim gives in his YouTube video) when you get the dies separate them into their separate bird figures and put them in a separate bag - I put a stamped image in with them as well - so much easier to sort them out if you're in a hurry!

I used my Embossalicious Picnic Plaid embossing folder on the b/p and cut the edge with one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside dies.  The b/p was from my bits box.  Sentiment is Waltzingmouse Stamps die cut with my Stitched Banner dies.  The balloon sentiment was computer generated and cut using my Lawn Fawn Party Balloon dies.  A bit of bakers' twine and some gems finished it all off.

Thanks for dropping by and taking time to comment - it's very much appreciated.

Happy crafting.
