CASEing Sandie

The challenge over at Inkspirational this fortnight is to case one of DT member Sandie's cards. Sandie is a CAS perfectionist! The way I see Sandie's style is that she very seldom use DPs or colored images, and yet her style is colorful. She uses textured papers or embossing folders, and she's great at picking the perfect sentiment for any given design.
There's such a great variety of cards to choose from, but I settled on a card I remembered from last year - see the smaller photo to the right or go to the original post here. I really liked its layout and the touch of bright color with a beautiful silhouette image.
For my card I replicated the layout and I chose not to use any DPs or colored image. The image and sentiment are heat embossed with black EP, and I chose a red card base and a bright yellow paper that I embossed with a star embossing folder, having the "Converse" look in my mind making this card for a teenager. I slightly sanded the embossed pattern and added 3 star glitter stickers from my stash.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #53 Case Sandie
2) Allsorts - #253 No Flowers
3) Brown Sugar - #88 Clean & Simple
4) Natalie and Amy's Challenge - #19 Embossing
5) Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - #304 No markers

Perfect! This will definitely go down well with a teenager. Bright bold colours and an image he or she can relate to. I still haven't had the courage to CASE Sandie... She has such a precise and unique style.
