Life is in the Little Things - CASE Study Challenge #20

Wow!  Its the New Year!  I look back at the past year, and it went so fast.  All kinds of things happened - all seem like just yesterday.  I'm so excited to be on a creative streak and to be able to share it with everyone here.  So here's a quick little post for this, the first day of 2011 or 1/1/11!

CASE Study Challenge #20

So the challenge was to create something using this very beautiful card as inspiration:

So here's mine:

Isn't it lovely?  I'm just in love with Verve Stamps at the moment, and this was a set I bought about two years ago when we lived in the other apartment.  I wasn't sure what to do with them until I saw the inspiration card ... and then it was just that - inspiration!   So using my Hearts on Fire and Fairy Tales stampsets, I set off to make this creation.

The cardstock is from Papertrey Ink - Raspberry Fizz, True Black and Stamper Select White. The stamps were stamped using Tuxedo Black from Memento and then highlighted with a Sakura Stardust pen in Grey.  The Bling is Kaiser Crafts. 

And a card isn't finished until the inside is as pretty as the outside:

What do you all think?  I want to wish my readers a Happy New Year - I'm looking forward to meeting new crafting friends this year - trying new things - and improving my skills to share with all of you!
