Case Study Challenge #199

Hi there!
We have the day off from swimming lessons at the beach today,
so I have a little free time to spend in my craft area. :)

I decided to play along with this week's Case Study Challenge #199:


I love Shari's card! It's so cool!
I decided to case this look by using my Lil Inker's cover plate
and some Simple Stories patterned paper.
Here's my card:


I die cut the cover plate from the map patterned paper & twice from PTI's stamper's select white.
I popped all of the insides out of the one and adhered it over the second one that I left intact.
Then, I placed the patterned paper pieces in the spots I wanted and when I was done,
I popped out all of the extra white pieces. 
I adhered the die cuts over some aqua mist card stock and then over a piece of Heidi Swapp patterned paper.
For my sentiment, I used PTI's Wet Paint II, die cut the strip with my smaller tag from Reverse Confetti's Tag Me Confetti Cuts.
I added some Simple Stories brads & PTI button twine to finish it off.

Thanks for looking!
