CASE Study Challenge #16

Happy Thursday, and Happy Thanksgiving to all our American & Canadian friends! I hope you'll have a fabulous day, spent with your family, celebrating all that you're thankful for!
I don't know about you, but Thursdays are so exciting to me :) I know that you're going to LOVE Heather's card that I chose for this week's inspiration!!


It's unfortunately our last week with Heather, and we're going to miss her here at CASE Study greatly. Why not give it a go this week and play along, and by doing so, show appreciation for sharing her talent with us this month!

CASE Study Challenge #15

Hello crafty peeps, welcome to our 15th challenge! Time flies quickly, and I can't believe we've already been through almost four months of fun...
Our November Muse, Heather, whipped up this sugary card a while ago, and I fell in love with is instantly. Here's this week inspiration piece for ya'!



Remember that you do not need to CASE whole card. In fact, we encourage you to take a free interpretation and show us what most appeals to you in this design. Just take a look at how versatile out DT's creations are!

Thank you so much for your amazing entries this week! Again I had a really hard choice narrowing them down to four, you gals are incredible!!

Our winner for CSC13 is Therese from Lostinpaper!!



Photobucket

I LOVE it that while Heather's card makes us drift towards a classy, flourished look, Therese went for a whimsical and cutesy design!! This card screams CUTE, and I can't image anyone not dying to receive this one in the happy mail. Wouldn't you agree?? :)

Our Top 3 winners are:



Marion @ Made by Marion
Amanda @ Stamp In Style
