...drove me to drink!!! Whew! Not only did I have a very difficult time trying to settle on a card of Faith's (Markie's Mom) to case, I also got caught up in all the details of her card. Faith definitely has a gift for detail because, once I finished, I found myself in need of one of JulieHRR's martinis!
I don't know why I chose such bright colors today other than I thought I needed to branch out a little. I changed the stamp sets, colors, ribbon treatment, and not as many brads as Faith used. I also had to create my own designer paper as I didn't have anything in the bright yellow I wanted to use, so I used the Simple Shapes set to create my background. I heat embossed the daisies in white and cut them out. I also added these little gingham buttons.
TFL looking at my bright card that drove me to drink!

Well, at least you can say you created a masterpeice. I love the bright colors and the neat button, ribbon and hardware. I have a new appreciation for how Faith gets these cards done so fast and early in the day!

Oh Charlene you make me laugh. I felt the same way about caseing Faith's card. Whoa!!! Too bad we don't live closer together. I could use a drink about now too. Whew!! But, my dear, your card is AWESOME!!! Love your handmade dp, the main image flower is so cool, and that red little button is too adorable. You so rocked this challenge!!

Didn't we just have a conversation this week about your drinking! LOL! You know if you keep it up, you will have to trade the Stampers Anonymous classes for Alcoholic's Anonymous! Who is gonna be my sponsor in Stampers Anonymous if you have to leave?
You card is just wonderful...it is gorgeous! I love the colors, they are not too bright! You did a wonderful job and now you can relax, enjoy your evening and feel good in your accomplishment! It rocks!
