Stamp Something - a CASE of Cindy

Morning All!

Well, Friday is here and we have a new challenge for you over on Stamp Something! Today is also the start of May, which is the month one year ago that we started the Stamp Something weekly challenges! It's going to be an exciting month of challenges, celebration blog candy, and sadly some goodbyes as well.

Each Friday during the month of May, we will bring you new challenges with a twist! The twist is that as we say goodbye to some of our DT members, we would like for you to CASE something they have created. This also means we will be making some design team changes, which could be good news for you! All month long we will be looking for new crafters to join our team. A new team will be chosen at the end of the month and announced during the last week in May. For more info, visit Stamp Something!

So, today's challenge is Something For a Mother and a CASE of our DT member Cindy. You must visit her blog and look through all her lovely creations, CASE her work, and tailor it to fit our Something For a Mother!

This is Cindy's beautiful card I chose to CASE:
And here's my version:I loved the layout on Cindy's card and the floral image. I didn't have the same papers or the image, so my CASE uses the same layout, embellishments, and a floral image. The papers are SU! Pink Pirouette and Certainly Celery along with some BasicGrey printed paper. The stamps are Embrace Life from SU! colored with Copics. I added some pink grosgrain and white organdy ribbon, a pink flower button, and some vanilla hodgepodge. The sentiment is Whimsy Simply Said.

We will miss working with Cindy each week. Her creations are always elegant and perfectly done and Cindy is a wonderful person as well. I hope you enjoy CASEing some of her work as much as our Stamp Something Design Team did!

Have a great weekend, happy stamping! :)
