Beautiful Friend - CASE Study Anniversary Blog Hop

I'm so excited to join the CASE Study team today for their anniversary hop. I was their Guest DT/Muse back in Dec 2010. They have a fabulous team of designers who wow their followers week after week.

Before I go further, I want to make sure you don't miss anything during this hop. So, if you came from Mariana Grigsby's blog, then you're on the right spot. If not, please check out the CASE Study blog for more info.

For today's card, I used two of my newest stamp sets by The Angel Company, Beautiful Lace and Dotted Peony. The papers are K&Company. The lace fits inside the Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. I colored the peony with Copics.
Beautiful Friend
I CASE'd my friend Jean Martin who made the beautiful card below. I followed the basic layout of the card. I used real lace instead of the stamped border. I used a stamped flower instead of a real one :).
To celebrate with the CASE Study Challenge blog, I am giving away blog candy that includes my stamp sets below:
Just leave me a comment and I will pick the winner from this post. You have until Friday at midnight. I will announce the winner this weekend. I will announce the winner next week! In addition, the CASE Study DT is also giving away blog candy, so make sure you stop by their blogs.

Your next stop is the ever fabulous, Sarah Martina Parker. I don't think I've ever seen anything she's made that I didn't like.

I'm linking this to the Moxie Fab World's Fanatical about Botanical challenge. Here are the stamp sets I used on my card. I am linking to my friend Angela Kelly, who is a TAC Demo and has an online store. She will ship overseas, but you will have to contact her directly.
