A CASE and a Season

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! Our weekend is finally HOT like it was supposed to be LAST MONTH! LOL! Today it's going to be nearly 100 degrees and super humid! Don't like that part...but at least we have AC and a pool!

My card today is for two challenges:

1. Paper Makeup Stamps August Release Party Challenge #2 (PMSRP13): A CASEing of another PMS stamper

2. Paper Take Weekly: This week's Challenge of making a card in the colors of a season

I chose THIS CARD by Melissa (stampin_melissa) to CASE. I loved it's simplicity and it used on of my favorite pieces of WORD ART digi stamp "Like Branches" by PMS. For my card, I kept the layout and the quote the same, but changed the color theme to a Fallish combination thus meeting the requirements for this week's PTW challenge of Seasons. I stamped my red cardstock with the Swirlie Tree (another PMS stamp) using Galaxy Gold ink (Brilliance Metallics). I just love the swirls! I opted to go with my Threading Water border punch for my scallops and then traced the edges of them with my Gold Spicca pen. I had this delightful little gold leaf in my stash and thought it would be perfect for this card--in place of the little filigree brad that Melissa used on hers.
