Time Out Challenge #83 - CASEing Hannelie!

I don't know what's gotten into me ... I have found a little bit of courage! 

There is a challenge in town that is asking us to CASE Hannelie Bester the Desert Diva ... you know she's a card-making-Silhouette-cutting genius, right?  Do get a beverage and spend an hour or ten perusing her blog, please... I'll wait!

Here is the card Hannelie made for us to CASE at Time Out Challenge #83:


Gorgeous!!! 

Soooo ... how can a girl change it up, yet still keep the wonderful elements of Hannelie's card?  hmmm... I've got it ... 


Black splatted dots ... you see her splatters?
Orange-y red to yellow colors - so I may have gone a little more green - but yellow leaves will NOT do!
And a beautiful flower - done!

Hope it gives you a smile, Hannelie!!!

Great CASE of Miss Hannelie's card! Your interpretation of her splatters just works perfectly for your card. The orange color is gorgeous, too. Pretty sure Hannelie will have a giant smile when she sees this. : ) Bev

Fabulous CASE of Hannelie's card! Love your splatters, the big ones as well as the little ones on the leaves!!! Even the sentiment looks like a splatter:) ! Your loose watercoloring is so artistic, Michele!
