CASEplorations June 2015 Top Picks
(in numerical order)

As Maria's off this month, I (Shery) made it easy on myself when it came to the top picks, so here are the team favorites:

Cornelia's pick: #2 Conil
Conil made the card her own with the subtle addition of color and the embossed frame tying it together.

Deepti's pick: #9 Barb
I love the color combination, even though she had bold flowers, yet I see the softness in this card.

Shirley's pick: #11 Robyn Oliver 
I love how she's added a message to the kingfisher's beak, and sparkle to the body. Makes the image pop off the card.

CASEplorations June
Vicki's pick: #15 Lin
Love black butterflies against the gorgeous colors

Kim's pick: #22 Conil
She really captured the essence of Cornelia's card without it being a straight copy. Love the technique she used and the grungy look. 

Monika's pick: #26 Patti Painter
Love how Patti took the elements she liked from Virginia's card and made them her own.

Congratulations, ladies! Please grab your CASEplorations Top Pick badge below.
