KSCC#30 - Just In Case

Angela, our hostess for this month's challenge says, "Ever thought, 'I can do that!' Well, now's your chance. Pick a card you love from the gallery of a member of the Kitchen Sink Crew and CASE away."

The card above is the beauty I have chosen to case from the exquisite work on Julie Masse!!  I love everything about this wonderful card. I have omitted the sentiment because the person it is going to wanted a card which could be used for any occasion. I added the sprigs of fern to hide the glue which showed through my vellum! I usually have an oops or two to cover up!

Thank you, Julie, for the inspiration you are to us all!
