I was SO happy to see that Beth had chosen Cathleen Torina(Ctorina) as this week's Featured Stamper!! If you have never seen her work, you MUST! It is some of the best on SCS...just look at the number of comments she receives on her cards! Many others besides myself are SO impressed with her artistry and sense of design. If you totaled all the comments up, I bet it would be gazillions! But another wonderful part of Cathleen is her generosity. She leaves terrific comments for MANY fellow stampers and encourages and inspires us all.
Her gallery is SO chocked full of "card-making beauties", it was hard to pick. I chose this card of hers to CASE. I used another image, changed the color scheme, didn't have 3-D butterflies, but added a button and charm. I did keep the layout very similar with a few modifications.
Enjoy your time in the spotlight, Cathleen! It is MOST deserved!!

Sallie, this is beautifully colored and a wonderful way to honor Cathleen!
