Hope your day weekend is Fabulous....


Wow! It's amazing how quick a 2-week holiday can fly by when it's crammed full of Bank Holidays and chocolate Easter!

Hard to believe it's already Friday Eve, but we all know what that means:

Yup, there may well be a huge Royal Wedding to prepare for tomorrow, but nothing stops for CASE study *wink*

This is Silke Ledlow's last week with us as our muse and I've loved CASEing her creations. This week's creation is no different of course:

Check out the original post for this card here!

So what did CASE? Well as soon as I spotted that gorgeous flower I figured it's be a shame not to dig out my own Prima Flowers and get busy with it:

Hope your day is Fabulous

I also loved the idea of using ribbon behind the flower in a bow. Silke takes it up a notch with her gorgeous double bow, but I couldn't get my ribbon to behave opted for a cleaner, simpler version *wink*

Now it's your turn! Come join in the fun with us and one randomly selected peep will win a 3 month subscription to the fabulous online magazine, Scrapbook News and Reviews!

Wait! Before you dash to your inky supplies, be sure to check out what the rest of the awesome CASE study DT created for your eyes only!
