It's a Case Study.....check it out!!!

Happy Thursday!

As promised I have a card for you today. I'm helping my sweet friend Iwona celebrate the 1st Anniversary of her Case Study Challenge Blog. We have a fun blog hop for you and you don't want to miss it.....!!!
If you came here from the upper talented Sarah Martina Parker you are right on track, if not, please start at the Case Study Blog!!!

The challenge for this hop was to CASE one of the Case Study Design Team members and I chose my sweet blogging friend Andrea Ewen...got to love this girl and her cards :) !!! I have to be fair...I really adore all of the ladies on the team and I wish I'd have more time to case them all!!!

HERE is a link to Andrea's card.......isn't it gorgeous???


Here is my cased version..........



I really liked all the fabbo details Andrea used on her card like, piercing, a doily, flowers, pearls and I had to add them to my card as well. Here are the new items I added.....the brand spankin' new quote from the ODBD Set called Sewn with Love, some Webster Design Paper, some White Seam Binding Ribbon I won not to long ago :) , Spellbinder Die Label 18 and the SU Antique Brad. Before I forget, I changed the colors to this weeks CR84FN35.


Okay you all...it's time to move on to my sweet blogging friend in Australia ~  Sue Kohler!!!

Thank you so much for hoppin' my way...I'll be back on Saturday with a new card...see you then!

                                                                    Hugs, ~Silke~
