MM CASE'ING... Melyssa Connolly

Good morning Friends!!
Did any of you get a chance to purchase any of the new releases going on all over blogland?  I have to say I was bad, and hopefully will get to show off some of those wonderful images when I get them. hehehe..

Today is another MM Case'ing over at the TGF-Farm Fresh Challenge blog.  Are you all enjoying the challenges that have been set before you?  I hope so as we are having so much fun creating them and seeing what you have been creating.  Keep up the wonderful job everyone!! :)
For today's case, 1LuvnMama chose this really pretty card by Melyssa Connolly.

Isn't her card wonderful?  I love that she mixed and matched the different patterned papers, and using the cool Creeper Sweet, from the Sweet & Toxic set, brought a lot of fun character to her card.  Make sure to stop by the Farm Fresh Challenge blog to see how the other ladies on the DT case'd Melyssa's card.  

I case'd her card but flipped it a little bit.  I am using my newest favorite bad boy, WS Ryan.  Isn't he the coolest addition to the WS crew?  I love his hair, so spikey and cool.  He's probably got all the girls on the Farm on edge he's so cool and cute, definitely bad boy material to me! hehehe

I couldn't resist coloring his hair like he had flames coming out of his head.  hehehe..  I think it turned out pretty HOT!  (no pun intended)  I kept the rest of his outfit pretty neutral, but still all boy.  The rest of the card came together pretty fast once I chose all the papers and the ribbon.  I thought these were masculine enough for Ryan's all guy coolness.  As you can see, I flipped the sentiments deciding the circle would look much better on top and the square one on the bottom.  Here is a close-up of Ryan:
Hehe, well I hope you like what I came up with for today's challenge case.  I hope you get a chance to play along, I would love to see how you interpret Melyssa's card.

Here is a reminder of the rules:

Lilo
