I am being CASEd! CSC25

Well, hello there, boy, am I excited about today!!!  Not every day that someone asks me to be their MUSE...LOL.  But today is the day, when I am being CASEd and I am super excited!!!  I got a sweet email a few weeks ago from Iwona Palamountain (Chupa for most of you) from the Case Study Challenge Blog and she asked me if I would be interested in being their Muse for the month of February.  I hesitated for about a second, since I knew I barely would be getting back from CHA, but I couldn't resist such a sweet invite. Specially, since I am such a fan of Iwona and her DT!

So, this month along every Thursday the amazing Designers of the Case Study Challenge Blog and their participants are going to case one my cards.  Yesterday I sat down and created my first card and here is what I came up with.  By the way this was the speediest card making for me, I think I broke some kind of record...LOL...hope you like it.  I had homework to do and I was kind of forced to create quickly, so I am thanking the creative card fairies to be sitting on my shoulder and guiding me...LOL

I used Samantha Walker Silhouette dies and her Unity stamps (sentiment) and look at that gorgeous butterfly, don't you just love it?  Its' by Loralie and it literally arrived two days ago and when I started working with my card, at first I was going to use a die cut, but than I just had to play with this stamp.  By the way these stamps are available at Scrap-mart, in case you need to have them...LOL.  I colored it in Luminarte Twinkling H2O's, which is so sparkly!  The papers I used are by Echo Park's pretty Be Mine line, another recent favorite of mine.  

Let me show you my original card that I CASEd this from.

I pretty much cased the sketch of the card and the rest is very different, as you can tell.

Now, hope you play along the Case Study Challenge and I am so excited to see what everyone will come up with!!!!  This really is an understatement, I can't wait!!!!  Hope you do, too.  Now hurry over and see the samples from the rest of the SCS team, as I am sure they are gorgeous!  I will be stalking their blog, that is for sure...hehehe

Well, that is it for me today.  Thanks for visiting and have a FABULOUS day!
