Today I'm sharing a card that I CASEd from a Dutch stamper, Helene der Breejen. You can see Helene's beautiful card here. Helene and I used the awesome new "Grateful Bunch" stamp set. I changed up the colors and sentiment, but the layout is all Helene.

I stamped a Tip Top Taupe lace border near the bottom of a Whisper White panel. Since the "Grateful Bunch" set is photopolymer, you can see right through it and line up the lace easily! Next, I stamped two leafy sprigs in Mint Macaron; then a butterfly and sentiment in Wisteria Wonder.

I added a torn strip of Typeset Specialty Series Paper and wrapped a length of Linen Thread around. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then onto a Tip Top Taupe card base.

Finally, I punched some Wisteria Wonder flowers with one of the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punches, adhered them with Glue Dots, and topped them with Metal Rimmed Pearls.

I'm pleased with the soft subtlety of the card--and I'm thankful for Helene's inspiration!
