CASE'ing Jen

When I saw this card by Jen Timko, I just knew that I had to CASE it.  I changed the colors up a bit, added some of the FABULOUS new glimmer brads, and tried out something I've never done before - put a lighter CS behind a darker one, as a mat.  To be totally honest, I don't think I like the light behind the dark that much, but it was fun to try something different.  I hope you like my card, and if you check hers out you can see where the sketch came from (Stamping 411) and all of that.  Leave her some love - I am sure she appreciates your kind comments as much as I do :)

As for me - this post, and the next three, are all scheduled while I am out of state house-hunting.  My stamping has been sparse, and it doesn't look to get much better.  I will do my best though, and at least you've got 3 more posts coming!! :)

Have a great day!
