Wow!  Talk about fabulous, right?  For this challenge we are to CASE ourselves.  It doesn't have to be a previous Christmas card, just one of our own cards in general, made into a new Christmas card.  Here is the card I chose to CASE, and my updated version.  I loved all of the layers, and the simple design.


 

I love the reindeer, with the ornaments hanging from his antlers.  He's so festive.  For a bit of added interest, I used my clear Wink of Stella pen on the ornaments, for some sparkle.  So pretty in real life.

You have until Friday, July 17th, to link your cards.

Now, here's the hop list~

Your next stop is Cohenna, so get to hopping!  Afterwards, come back and link up with us.  We cannot WAIT to see what you create for us this month!  HUGS and Merry stamping, friends! :)
