Thank Goodness For CASEing

Sometimes when the mojo disappears, it is nice to be able to CASE someone else's idea, layout, etc.
I have so many Birthday cards to make in March and April but no ideas.  Thank goodness for other cardmakers who let us copy them.

I based this card on Julie Tilman's card which I am showing below:
Don't you love it?  I did.  So I took the idea of strips of designer paper and distressing them and then adding a sentiment in the middle.  The sentiment on my card is a stamp from a set of birthday sentiments.  After stamping I cut it out with a Die-namic Stitched Rectangle and sponged the edges.  The hearts are made with a Stamploration die; the flower with a Cuttlebug die.
