Happy Monday and Happy Hippity Hop!
If you didn't start at the Ippity Blog for today's hop, then be sure to head there now to start at the beginning to ensure you don't miss one of the blogs on the Hop today. There is a lot of inspiration to be had!!
Today's card was a fun one for me to make because I just loved the challenge that Maria has given us. For the Ippity Hippity Hop Challenge for today (IHHC32) we got to CASE any card in the SCS Ippity Gallery! Woohoo!! Talk about a LOT of inspiration!!

But after some careful consideration and remembering how much I was always inspired by Heather's work while she was one of Ippity's Guest Designers, I decided to choose one of her pieces to CASE. To see the card that I chose for my inspiration, please click HERE!
And here is my take on Heather's amazing card....
What inspired me the most about this card were the bright and vibrant colors that Heather paired with her Ippity stamps. I used similar colors but instead chose to work with Cosmo Crickets Delovely Line which had a very similar color palette. I love the layers Heather used and I also like how she rounded two of the four corners so I definitely wanted to incorporate in my card too.
Four Ippity stamps were used in the making of this card. Similar to Heather I chose to use the butterfly flower from The Simple Things stamp set, but I varied my sentiment and background. The musical score background stamp is from the Music of My Heart set and the butterfly is from the Books a Flutter set.
I also loved Heather's placement of her ribbons and rhinestones and chose to CASE those too! This was a wonderful card to CASE and I am so inspired by Heather's card. Both versions just make me so happy!! The sentiment on this card speaks so much to me right now. I am trying very hard to remember the truth in the quote I used. I sometimes feel that my life is in limbo, but I do believe that there are good things waiting in my future! Patience is a virtue...right?
