A Happy Hello
After a great worship service and lunch out with friends, I took a nap and now it's time to stamp! This card is a CASE of my good friend, Teresa Kline (aka va.sunshine on SCS). She's being featured on the blog challenge - Last But Not Least - of another good friend and SU demonstrator, Deb Horst, where Deb has picked one of Teresa's many awesome cards and is asking us to CASE it. We were to use a single sentiment, DP and pearls as Teresa used. I combined this with 2 other challenges: Crazy 4 Challenges (to use brown, green, & vanilla) and with the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS (Becky Spinks). I chose this card from Becky's wonderful gallery and CASED her layering of tags for the sentiment plus she used DP as the BG as well. I changed it up by adding a lace border with chocolate chip scalloped edge. I couldn't decide whether I should add the bow, but it won out in the end.
