Ready Set Go X3

It's time for round three of the Ready, Set, Go challenges. In May, Kelly challenge the three of us to create using the newest stamp/set we've purchased AND the stamp set from our oldest post in the SCS Gallery (or the oldest one that we still own the stamp set). Then in June, Barb challenges us to add something that begins with an R (ready), S (set), and G (go) to our card.

Yes, you've guessed it. This month I got to choose the theme. We all three just happened to establish our SCS galleries in 2008, so I challenged us to go back and find our 8th entry (to represent 2008) and CASE that card. I assured them the CASE could be anything - color scheme, images, sketch, whatever... just tell us how they CASE'd the card.

I'm so excited to see what Barb and Kelly came up with.

Interestingly, when I went back to look at my 8th card, I discovered some things.

First, my photography was AWFUL!!! (Blurry, blurry, blurry!)

Second, I loved DP even then. (Truthfully, I remember being afraid to use DP for a long time in my cards. I collected it, hoarded it, but often times cringed at the thought of actually using it.)

Third, the picture is pretty blurry so it's difficult to tell what coloring medium I used, but I know I didn't color the image with Copics because I didn't own them then.

AND... I still own the stamps I used on the card.

Here is my CASE of the 8th card in my SCS Gallery:

Obviously I used the same stamps, but I also used the color lavender/plum. That's not a color I use very often. I added a lot of green to it, too... kind of like that color scheme. And I also used two white brads for embellishment, just like in my original card.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
