You're so very Special

Hi everyone.  Today I'm playing along at CASEplorations on the STAMPlorations blog. This month they have the very talented Laura Bassen as their CASE inspiration.  I LOVE her card and just had to play along.

As you can see, I used the same stencil, sponging with yellow and lime green inks.  I love how bright and cheerful the card is.  I kept everything else to a minimum, with just a simple black stamped sentiment and a few sequins for sparkle.

If you have a chance, check out the amazing cards for the CASEplorations Design team - you'll be glad you did.  And come play along! :)

I'm also entering my card into the STAMPlorations Anything Goes challenge that runs continually. :)
