CASE-ing Christmas #28: August

Hello, friends! Welcome back to the CASE-ing Christmas Challenge! We've made a few changes to our regular  program and have decided to become a MONTHLY challenge. So, starting August 2015 our challenge will run from the 5th of each month at 6:00am CST until the last day of the month at 11:55pm CST.

Each month, we will be celebrating CHRISTMAS on the 25th by doing a random giveaway to one lucky participant! We will have a variety of prizes to give out, but you MUST be linked up by the 23rd of each month in order to be entered into the drawing! :)

All other rules still apply, and the concept of the challenge is not changing. As before,  we'll give you a card to CASE and you CASE it! If you've never CASEd a card, here's what you need to do:
  • Look at the CASE card photo.
  • Be inspired by some element of the card. This could be colours, layout, image, etc.
  • Make a card based on that inspiration and link it up at the CASE-ing Christmas Challenge Blog by 11:55pm CST 31 August 2015.
Let's kick off our challenge by showing you the card to CASE for the month of August.  This beautiful card was created by Steph and I can't wait to see your take on it.

I've pretty much stuck to Steph's sketch and made a super simple card. The background paper is from a very old pad by Papermania called "Henbury Lane - Poinsettia".  The lace border was given to me by my sister which I have been saving for a "special occasion"... that's the standard excuse by the hoarder in me. I have lots of stuff waiting in line for that "special occasion"! LOL.

To brighten things up, I've added some tiny green bling. I put together letters cut with WRMK Lifestyle Parade Alphabet dies to make the greeting.
