GRACE C.A.S.E.

As I have mentioned before, C.A.S.E. (in the "wonderful world of stamping") means "Copy And Share with Everyone".
Well, over at ChristianPaperCrafts I recently participated in their "C.A.S.E. Artist Saturday" challenge and this is what I came up with.

The artist was Sabrina, aka Okimom2girlz on CPC, and she had an amazing gallery from which to choose something to C.A.S.E.

This is the card I picked. I absolutely fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, and knew it was the one for me! I have to admit, I was worried about weather I could do her beautiful card justice, but I sure had a lot of fun trying!



I figured this was the perfect card to use one of the awesome Prima birds I had in my stash, just crying out to be used ;-)


And (as my friends all know) I tend to be one heck of a flower hoarder (right, Debbi?), so it was nice to use a bunch of them here!


So, what do you think? I am really new to card challenges and wonder if I did okay. I had a great time, and do plan to continue with the CPC challenges. They have lots of great themes to chose from, so maybe you too will want to check them out!

Thanks so much for looking. I would love it if you'd kindly leave a comment!
