Wee Memories CASE challenge

Yesterday, one of my Christmas wish come true! I've been submitting cards to Paper Crafts and yesterday, I finally received my first happy email from them. I have 3 cards accepted for Paper Crafts Card Creations: Volume 9! Sooo happy! As soon as I saw the email I did the super excited silent whoop! LOL, I was at work, so can't really yell out loud. I just did the jumping up and down and called hubby to share the news. I think I almost hyper ventilated because I was so excited. :)

Just have to share my happy news. Now, on to this week challenge from Wee Memories "CASE your favorite designer" sponsored by Limelight Papercrafts.

                               

Have to say this is one of my favorite challenge. Of course, I have several favorite designers. I think that's the fun part, deciding who to CASE and then which card?!

I decided to CASE the amazing Heather Pulvirenti. Her cards always has that crisp clean design I totally admire. From all her fabulous cards, I case THIS card. And here's my card that I am also entering for Moxie Fab Favorite Occasion Week: Love challenge.



As soon as  I saw Heather's card, I knew right away I want to use the Asian Fusion set from Papertrey Ink. It's been awhile since I used it and this card come out exactly the way I envisioned it. I also did the french knot to make the center for each flowers. For the butterflies, I stamped Hero Arts Friends definition (courtesy of, Trinh), punch out the butterfly, and distressed the edges.



Here's an upclose of the french knot and the butterflies. I sure hope you will join us on this fun challenge and I cannot wait to see who you're going to CASE!

Check out who Wee Memories DT CASE for  this challenge and see their amazing creations HERE.

Later this morning, with my girlfriend, Leslie, I will be hand delivering the cards from Caring Hearts Card Drive to Afton Oaks Nursing Homes. I will ask them if I can take some pics. My last weekend before my trip. Sorry, don't mean to bore you with the count down of my trip, but I can't help being super excited. :) Have a super duper great weekend! Hugs!
