Ippity Hop, PDCC and Case Study

Good Morning !  Today I have a card to share with you that I made for the double challenge at The Play Date Cafe and  Case Study.  The inspiration was a card from Eva Dobilas using the colors of red, black and green for the PDCC and then to create a card based on Eva's creation for Case Study.  Here is the card I created,




and here is Eva's inspiration card and the basis for both challenges

Eva always make such beautiful cards so it was a delight to try to make a card based on her creation.  I used the following stamp sets on this card:  How You Doin', Now & Always and Love in Return.  I made the red felt flower from a Sizzix die and punched the butterfly from a lace doily.  Some paper from October Afternoon and a stained doily finished off the card.

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog! And thanks for the information about {ippity} stamps. There are a lot of lovely older stamp sets from {ippity}, which I'll order in future from you, maybe! I love the cuppy cakes very much.
