Hello my lovelies! I have a quick card that I want to share with you all. When looking through my March/April 2013 PaperCrafts magazine, I saw this one card that just screamed to me to CASE it.

 Here's my inspiration: It's the Grungy Congrats Card designed by Lynn Mangan.

And here is my take on it:

...and the inside:

I used Glimmer Mist in Sapphire and Graphite for the splotches. Instead of circles, I used a graduation cap stamp and checkers replaced the chevrons. I just loved the graphic/grungy look to Lynn's card!

If I've stepped on anyone's copyright toes, I do sincerely apologize. I'm not entering this for any publication, challenge or selling it. My intention was innocent and only meant to flatter. ☺

That's it for now. Back to housework (UGH!) Have a great day!

  3. Hey, it's a CASE. And you shared your inspiration - and you have TOTALLY made this your own! I am in love with the grad caps - it totally evokes tossing them in the air after the ceremony!

  4.'s totally A-Ok to CASE! That's what the inspiration is for! LOVE your take on that grungy look. Using the graduation cap image is just brilliant, and I love the checkerboard you used, too. Does totally look like the cap is getting tossed into the air! Awesome!

  5. Ohhhhh love the grungy splatter look!! Great job with this card! I agree with Jessi, looks like the caps have just been thrown into the air in celebration

  6. Beautiful card. Love the blue color scheme.
