CASE Study Challenge 24

Hello peeps! I've been busy trying to make some cards for some magazine submissions tonight. It gets a little crazy when their list is long and you have more than one magazine that  you want to submit to. It's also fun and exciting, hoping that each time you submit you'll be lucky and they'll pick your card. I'm taking a little break from all the submissions to bring you a new CASE Study Challenge! This is the last week for our very talented guest  Mercy Kerin. Let's show her a little love and drop some nice messages on her blog.

When I started making this card, all I knew was that I wanted to use the cake stamp from Make a Wish (PTI). It's just so cute I can't believe I don't use it often enough. I also used a doily from Martha Stewart for the very first time! If I told you how many times I went through the 3 Michael's in our area looking for these doilies, I bet you wouldn't believe me! Heather was nice enough to look for some for me at her Michael's, but she wasn't lucky either. FINALLY, last Sunday, they were there!!! I know it's barely visible on my card...none-the-less, I was thrilled to finally have some! The background stamp is from Stampin' Up, it's my favorite damask image. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, it's one of my favorite sentiment sets. I have a bunch of hearts and stars that I've already pre-cut with my Expression. I just grab one and adhere glitter on it whenever I need to use them.  

I hope you enjoyed my card. So come on over to CASE Study Challenge Blog and let's play!
