*Beate*-ful CASE

Seriously?! Beate hasn't been the Featured Stamper already?? Wow! Well, not that it matters because haven't we ALL done a little Beate CASE'ing already? I know I have...she's a rock star! I chose to CASE Beate's Guava Rose card.

I kept the same '08 in colors, just changed the order a little. I also used a different pattern from the Afternoon Tea DP and used a large square nestie panel instead of a large rectangle, only because I don't have those. I would have loved to use the textured Guava DP like she did, but I didn't have any of that either. Oh, and I just realized I FORGOT to do the piercing around the oval panel. Totally meant to do that, oops!

I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the stem and flower:

On the inside, I stamped the bee from the Bloomin' Beautiful set down in the lower right-hand corner in Versamark (sorry, I couldn't get a real great picture of it):

Stamps: SU Bloomin' Beautiful
Paper: Groovy Guava, Textured Soft Sky, Afternoon Tea DP, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Versamark
Accessories: Guava Double-Stitched Ribbon, Oval Nestabilities, Lg. Scallop Square Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Hardware (from jewelry section of Michael's), Crystal Effects (to glue down the hardware), Angel Wings Shimmerz
Technique: Watercoloring
Folded Measurements: approx 4" x 3.75"
