You made my day...brighter!

I'm thrilled to be home and back to creating!  It's always nice to get away, but there is nothing like home sweet home.  I figured the best way to get my mojo back was to jump into a few challenges.   Here I've combined this weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge CFC66 (Something found in or by the ocean) with the CASE Study Challenge #104 (to CASE a dt member).  I have always admired Debby Hughes' creations, her CAS style and perfectly placed rhinestones always leave me breathless! 

This is the card of Debby's that I CASEd :


Gorgeous, right?!  It was hard to narrow down which card I would CASE.  I may have to participate in this challenge again :)

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Stamps:  A Pocketful (Wplus9). Rainbows & Clouds (Lil Inker)
Ink:  So Saffron, Basic Gray (SU!)
Paper:  Very Vanilla (SU!), Summer Fresh patterned paper (Simple Stories)
Accessories:  Label Layers 4 die (Wplus9), Button & Linen Thread (SU!), Rhinestones

This is stunning, Maureen...a beautiful CASE of Debby's card! The colors are so cheery and your CAS design is just perfect, right down to those two little gems placed by the sentiment! Thanks for playing along with our CASE Study celebration challenge!

I have to laugh because I was thinking of CASEing this card too! Us Maureens think alike! Thanks for helping us celebrate 2 years over on CASE Study :)

Love the text paper in there and the sun with overlaid sentiment just sets it all off beautifully. Many thanks for honouring me again with your CASE and for joining CAS-ual Fridays too :)

Although I love Debby's original and think her cards are perfection, I have to say that I love your version even more! I love the softer tones, newsprint, and layered banners. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS-ual Fridays and CASE Study!
