Happy Belated Birthday, Peggy


Today's card is a CASE of a card done by my good friend, Kylie (Kylie's Addicted to Stamps).  She was the Guest Designer at Time Out last month with the challenge to CASE this gorgeous card made by her (see below).  Unfortunately, I was still recovering from my surgery, so I didn't get a chance to join in the wonderful challenge.  But once I was feeling better, I HAD to make one ... and I made this with a special friend in mind, Peggy.

Peggy is a very talented stamper who I met through SCS.  She is a master at layering intricate dies to make the most beautiful and elegant cards.  It was her birthday a little while ago, so I made the above card with her in mind.  Happy Belated Birthday, Peggy! :)


Here's Kylie's card that I CASE'd (copy and share everything)

I LOVE this design and basically copied it, just reversing the order of the background so the embossing is on the bottom, and adding die-cut tulips in place of Kylie's pretty flowers.

I'm adding this to the Happy Little Stampers March CAS Challenge - Sponging.



The sponging I did on this card is with the tulips.  I sponged around the outside edges of all the tulip petals before shaping them with my stylus and mat.  The sponging gives them visual depth and I usually do that with most of my die-cuts.  It makes a big difference.

This is also a reminder for the Mixed Media Card Challenge #9 - Hints of Spring. These tulips definitely scream spring to me :)

Also entering it into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Special Lady / Girly ... where they are looking for anything girly or feminine. :)  And into Virginia's View Challenge #13 - All Things Embossed.



And just noticed that the challenge for Addicted to Stamps & More is CAS (#134), so entering there as well. :)
