CASE'ing IBC

****SECOND POST TODAY****  Please scroll down to see Project #1 of my Top Note Die Week.

Gretchen Barron is hosting a contest where you CASE a project out of the new IB&C but just change something to make it your own.
This is what I made.
This is a CASE from the card shown on page 182 of the catalog.  I liked this card because I get to use Baja Breeze, Top Note Die and the GOR-GE-OUS Mocha Morning DSP.  The original uses Elements of Style, which I don't have.  So I chose Just Believe.  I thought this card was pretty when I saw it in the catalog.  But when I was done... Well, not one to really boast much, but I LOVE MY CARD!!!  How do you like that bird???  I punched it out of the super rich special paper from the Mocha Morning pack.  The black has this velvety feel.  Oh, it's awesome!

I also used the Color Spritzer Tool to "spit" some ink from the marker onto the Top Note piece.
I've had this Spritzer Tool FOREVER.  I probably bought it when it first came out like 10+ years ago, yet I so use it so seldom.  That will need to be changed.  It was kinda fun!

Oh, and I don't have the First Edition DSP.  So I cheated by cutting a piece of our newspaper. :)

BTW, not until I typed up the post, I realized since this card uses the Top Note die, it's also fitting for my special Top Note Die Week.

Ink: Soft Suede
Papers:  Baja Breeze, Mocha Morning DSP
