Congratulations, Roberta! What a lovely gallery to look through for inspiration. I chose this one as my inspiration. I changed the square brads to buttons and moved them around the card. I used patterned paper instead of an embossing folder for the background and fussy cut the image (like you did) and mounted it on pop dots, and added a sentiment behind the image.

You coloured the sweet image so beautifully in soft shades which almost have a vintage feel - it all plays together so well with the patterned papers and layout - this is a fun, adorable holiday card and a fab CASE!
