Happy 13th Birthday Charlotte and the Case Study Challenge

This post is a little late today because I had to actually make Char's card. Oops!! I have been so busy with Christmas that her birthday snuck up on me this year. Having Thanksgiving early seems to have set me back a bit on my scheduling of things. Poor kid to have such a rotten mother!

I created this card using the CASE Study Challenge #169 from the Case Study Blog. It was to use the picture below as an inspiration to create a crafting project using the image below.

Isn't it pretty? I so wish I had tome to make something other then a card but I am in a bit of a rush today!! Here is what I created:

I mainly chose to use the blues and greens with just a touch of black. I used My Favorite Thing feathers die cut to create the feathers. I cut them out of a scrap piece of embossed paper. I then inked them up with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Shabby Shutter and Peacock feather and then inked slightly around the edges in black. The ink splats were stamped with the same two colors. 

I LOVE how this card came out and only hope that Charlotte likes it too!!

Happy 13th Birthday baby girl!! You are the BEST thing that ever happened to me and made my life complete!!

Thank you for stopping by!! Have a great Saturday night!!


Paper Trey Ink Snow Globe Tags-Day 6 of Christmas Fun

Not sure why this didn't actually get out as scheduled yesterday so re-posting it manually today.

Hello everyone!! Welcome to day 7 of my 12 days of Christmas Fun!!

Today is just a quick post. I created a tag using Paper Trey Ink's Winter Snow Globe Set. I have a confession, though, I CASED the design from Dawn McVey, one of my favorite designers for PTI. She had this tag on a card with this design and I just copied it but didn't place it on a card!!
Here is her card:

Here is my take on the  tag:

Since I cannot copy anything directly (it isn't in me) I changed it up using different papers and adding some sparkle to the snow globe. Isn't he cute?

Thank you for stopping by!
