When In Doubt...CASE IT

I haven't posted since July.  
I really haven't been crafting this summer.  Lots of swimming, visiting, eating, reading, gardening, but no card-making.  
So I'm trying to get back in the swing of things.  

Whenever I am lacking motivation or mojo (or both...) I give myself a kickstart by case-ing something I fell in love with by another designer.  This time it was this card by Julia Altermann.
I absolutely love her work.  Her videos are always informative and she has a great sense of humor, too.  She's lots of fun to learn from! 
If you do not already follow her blog or subscribe to her youtube channel, hurry up and do it!!

Here is my version of her delightful card: 

 I really need to invest in better lighting.  I keep saying that....
Anyway, I followed her video tutorial, but colored with Prismacolors.  I used an old  Recollections stamp set for the monsters and two SU sets, Perfect Blend and Gorgeous Grunge for the coffee splatters.

This card is headed down to my daughter at college in Philadelphia along with a Starbucks gift card and a few other goodies.

Thank you, Julia, for your inspiration!!!  

Have a great day!
