Better late than never...


Happy Monday! Happy first day of half term for me -yay!

Do not adjust your monitor:

Nope - it's not Friday Eve, but it is time for me to make up for missing this week's CASE Study due to icy weather last Thursday!

So if you've got time for any last mintue studying, check out this beauty of Karola's and get busy:

Check out the original post of this card here!

I'm not sure if my last-minute entry can ever do Karola's card justice, but here it is anyways:

Happy Birthday

I was totally inspired by the butterfly (no surprises there!), the polka dots, the elegant combo of navy and burgundy and the use of the stamped frame. I have that very frame in my own stamping stash so it was rude not to ink it up!

So if you've always been a bit of a procrastinator like me, or you fancy being one for CASE Study, grab those stamps and inks and get busy because the challenge closes on Tuesday at midnight EST!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Catch ya later!

Glad you're starting to thaw out a bit, or at least able to travel safely! This is such a sweet take on Karola's card. I'm loving the blue gems against the scarlet butterflies!

The LO is great, love the flourish coming from the circle frame. The butterflies are stunning in the scarlet jewel with blue rhinestones. Stunning. Hugs Bev xx
