Case'ing - Kim Yu!

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  I hope you've had a great weekend and are taking a moment today to remember the men and women who sacrificed for us and others.  We owe it to them to remember & salute them.

Today at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog, DT Sparkle chose to case a really cute card by the fabulous Kim Yu!!  If you haven't visited Kim's blog you should.  She has the most creative layouts and projects.  She's also a huge TGF fan.  I'm so happy to be case'ing her card and I hope I do it justice.  Here is her fabulous card using Flirty Anya

Isn't this card cute?!!  She did such a fabulous job with the layout and coloring.  And her bow!! Gorgeous! 
Click here to see how the DT case'd Kim's card. For my card I actually case'd it except I did not pull out the sewing machine to stitch.  I created fake stitches which look just as real, well at least to me they do.  Everything else is pretty much as close to Kim's card as possible.  I also chose a pink and blue (turquoise) color scheme...
If you couldn't tell, I switched bodies and heads with Fancy Anya & WS Dee Dee.  This was a fun combination for me.  I knew I wanted something fun and flirty to match Kim's card, but I wanted to use an image that I hadn't inked up in quite some time.  Dee Dee is colored with Copics and the band on her dress is paper pieced using the same polka dot pp behind her.  Speaking of patterned papers, the papers on this card are from MME, Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink paper pad.  I thought this paper was very flirty and fun for my card.  The turquoise card stock is from Hanko Designs.  The black cs is from Recollections and the stitches were created using a black Copic Multi-liner pen.  The ribbon is from Celebrate It, a holiday collection that I purchased during Christmas at Michael's.  Lastly, the sentiment is actually an epoxy sticker from Cloud 9 Designs.
Alrighty, I hope you are inspired to join in the fun this time around.  Remember there are two ways to play.  You can either case the card like I've done or you can use it as inspiration for your card or project.  Make sure to upload your card to the TGF gallery by Sunday, @ noon CST for a chance to win a single image of your choice.  The winner will be chosen at random.  Upload your card to the Galleria>Farm Fresh Challenges 2011>Monday Case Mania> Kim Yu.

Mahalo for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here soon. :)
