Stamper's Dream Monthly Challenge

Hi everyone! It's time for the Stamper's Dream monthly challenge! This month Michelle challenged us to CASE a member of the Stamper's Dream DT. You're welcome to play along! Just chose any member of the Dream Team and CASE one of their cards. Just like the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS, be sure to change a couple things to make it your own. Post a link to your project on Michelle's blog...she's going to have a DREAMY TREAT for one lucky participant! If you upload to SCS, use SDDC6 in the keywords.

We were each assigned a different team member to CASE. I got to CASE Laurie!! Whoo-hooo!! Oh my word, I'd love to CASE ALL of her cards. You totally ROCK, Laurie! I love your style! I chose THIS CARD of Laurie's to CASE.



I kept the same basic blue/red color combo, layout, and a Stampavie image. She used a Stampavie Rachelle Ann Miller image, called My Little Friend...I used a Stampavie Sarah Kay image, called My Sweet Lili. Laurie also had REAL stitching on her card...ahem, I can't sew....so I faux sewed. One of these days, I hope to do real stitching...some day. The main image is up on Dimensionals and then the scallop oval behind it is up on a second layer.

The Classic Red Prism paper, Versafine Onyx Black ink, and Penny Lane Freebird DP (striped and floral prints) that I used on my card are also from Stamper's Dream.
