First of all, I have to say that I was so happy when Julie Gearinger was added as a SUO Challenges Design Team member! I've been an admirer of hers for a long time, so I knew she was going to fit in beautifully.
Okay, that disclaimer aside, I just had to CASE her Wetlands card, but change it up a little bit. In trying to simplify it for my Masculine Cards class, I opted to leave off the bow to make it more mailable (and easier on my bow-challenged stampers, lol). I probably should have left off the Antique Brad due to the thickness, and substituted a few Candy Dots, but I liked the little bit of classy bling that the brad added. Since we weren't using the Pool Party ribbon she used, I added some Coastal Cabana Core-dinations at the bottom, embossed and sanded for added dimension.
Since the scripty background is En Français, I guess that makes it a French Canadian Goose, 'eh?
Go check out the upcoming classes on my Events calendar. I just added a new card class for September 1st that covers all the bases!
