Go ahead and CASE!

I can't stress it often enough, that it is totally OK to copy (CASE) a card from someone else. Why not? It will save you lots of time and get your creativity kick-started... cause sometimes you'll make bigger changes than anticipated.

The card I made today is copied almost to the "t" from my upline Dena A. though, because I just LOVED it so much when she shared it the other day!

Here is my version:

I just had to use a different ribbon because I didn't have the one she used. And since the Tip Top Taupe was a little wider, I simply cut it more narrow to fit what I wanted to achieve. I also added one more large flower, because I had it die cut... and the small one that would have been almost covered by the ribbon, I put on top of the ribbon. Then of course I couldn't stop there and added pearls ;-)  See... you have a starting point and can always add!

Here is Dena's card so you can why I wanted to copy it:

A little side note... If I were to sell cards, I would definitely change something on my card to make it different from the original, Sort of make it my own... and that change, in my eyes would make it OK. I would never copy a card completely and sell it as my own creation, it would not feel right to me. I am just saying... in case you were wondering. Again, this is my personal opinion.
