Today, on her birthday, the CCEE Stampers are paying tribute to one of the founder members, Charlene (LilLuvsStampin here on SCS), who so sadly passed away earlier this month.
We have the option of either CASEing any of her beautiful cards or using some of her favourite things - penguins, M&Ms, purple...
I was going to go penguins, but as I looked through her blog I came across THIS lovely card she had made early last year for a CCEE challenge, just at the start of her battle with cancer, and since she used one of my favourite stamps in such a wonderful creative way, I chose to CASE that.
As always with the CCEE challenges you are most welcome to play along with us and join us in honouring Charlene (InLinkz on the blog or use CCEECharlene as your keyword if you upload here on SCS).
A2 base, purple Bazzll.
White card treated with wrinkle-free distress using h old paper, antique linen and tea dye. Linen stamped with Tea Dye. Top half embossed with Textile ef, bottom half stamped with IO CAC Vines in Forest Moss.
PB Blush stamped with markers, second layer popped up. Sentiment from Asian Artistry.

Oh my, this is touching! You picked a gorgeous card to case and yours is really beautiful as well. Lovely way to do the flower - she was an amazing crafter. Your sentiment grabs my heart. Love this - into my faves! She would be proud of this too. Hugz!

What a beautiful tribute to such a great artist that was so caring & encouraging to others... Charlene will sorely be missed by many, especially here on SCS, she was such an inspiration to many of us. I have a great feeling that she would be so thrilled by your wonderful tribute.... Beautiful!!!
