Catalog CASE Challenge

I decided to attempt a personal weekly challenge of my own -- CASE the Catalog. I will choose a card each week from either SU, TAC or CTMH catalogs and case it. Very simple and yet so fun. This card is from page 84 of the SU catalog for the Embrace Life set. I liked the "scalloped" edges - I used a 1/2 inch circle punch and taped them underneath the amethyst layer. I also borrowed SU's idea for the primas on the Never Ending Joy set as seen on page 30. I glued rhinestones in the center using Stickles, that way when you press the rhinestones into the glue, some of the glitter "oozes" out and you get some added glitz. The card measures 4 1/4 square and I think the ribbon overwhelms it a bit. But when I found it in my stash of unused ribbon, the colors were perfect so on it went. The pearls, a gift from my sweet friend Vivian, were added.

Hooray, the sun is out but the air is still a bit crisp. Almost reminds me of an autumn day instead of end of May. I'm off to hang up some laundry -- my small way of helping out the environment! Yesterday I bought all kinds of hockey shirts for the family to get us ready for the first game of the Stanley Cup. GO PENS!!!!!

Another beautiful card! I love that ribbon and think it looks very nice. I did notice the pearls and they look nice on their too. Great card!
