Time Out #23 - CASE with a Twist

Hi everyone!  We have a new challenge going on over on the Time Out blog.

This week we are CASEing this lovely card by Kylie and putting our own twist on it.
I loved her layout and the tag...I LOVE tags!!  I just took the Clean & Simple 4 class over at Online Card Classes last week and the background I created was one they taught.  I've seen this done before, but never tried it.  When I saw the inspiration card, I thought it would be a great way to put my twist on the background.  I also added some double-sided tape and glitter on the horizontal stripe.  The dark flowers were white before I added some Picked Raspberry ink directly to it.  The rest is pretty self-explanatory.  I needed a sympathy card for some good friends whose mom just passed on.  I love this sentiment.
We have a guest for this challenge....Sarah!  Stop by the Time Out blog to see her card and the rest of the DT.  Some really pretty cards this week!

It is a warm sentiment, Lisa, especially when the friends who have had a loss are close and your heart comes alongside of them. Sorry for their loss. Praying that you and kevin will be a comfort as you stand by them.

I love the dimension your bg tecnique gave to this piece and that pickled raspberry covered fantastic.
