I ♥ Melina's Style

Today is a special day - it's the day that the Crafty Gals blog group gets to CASE one of our own. I am super excited that today is all about Melina!

Melina is such a talented scrapbook and cardmaker! I looked around her blog a while, trying to figure out what I would CASE and truthfully, I was in awe. She has so many wonderful scrapbook layouts like this one and this one. Oh! and look at this one, too.

And her cards! She has created some outstanding ones... like this one. I really like this one, too. She has a variety of styles, including a lot of CAS cards. I have mentioned before how difficult I think it is to make a good CAS card, but Melina seems to have mastered that style. Look at this! Isn't it fabulous?

Sooooo... I decided to CASE one of Melina's CAS cards. You can see the one I got my inspiration from by clicking here.

I love the paper piercing, the layout, the simple images. I loved the placement of the sentiment. And I loved all the white. Yep, I loved EVERYTHING about this card.

So, I CASE'd it.

I consider Melina a good friend, so I my card to reflect friendship, too.

This is the inside of my card:

Thank you for inspiring me, Melina!

Be sure and check out the other Crafty Gals blogs to see how Melina inspired them. You'll find the links to their blogs in my left sidebar.

I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog today!
