A CASE'd Card

My friend Sandy called me to tell me about a challenge I could enter this card in, then she told me that there is a website Feline Playful that lists all the challenges out there and then also the winners. I found out I could enter this card in three challenges. They are Sweet Stamps, Craft Your Passion and the Stamping Scrapper Challenge.
Wish me luck.
Every once in awhile when I'm cruising web sites I'll come across a card that is so beautiful I just have to try and copy it. I can't always achieve the same beauty but I try to com close.
This card is a case in point. I saw this card and just had to try and recreate it.
Luckily I had some of the Papertrey Sweet Blush card stock and I also had the Mat Stack 3 die and the Mat Stack 3 Collection.
I had to change some things just because I didn't have the correct ribbon and my stamping didn't come out the same. I stamped the large Year of Flowers Carnation in the corner and the smaller one above and to the side with Versamark then used my Martha Stewart Dove embossing powder. I love the softness to this card. I edged the flowers with my CopicR20 and colorless blender. I had to use three different shades of pink Copics for the small carnation image R20, R22 and RV21 and I think it came out okay. It's going to be hard to send this card to anyone but I do have a special birthday coming up and I think this card is meant for that person.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
