This is for today's FEATURED STAMPER # 171 - Cathleen Torina. I have had the pleasure of sharing DT positions with Cathlleen so I know how fantastic she is. Congratulations gal. I chose to CASE her WHAT'S COOKIN' card. I love those darling hens and knew exactly what to use. I pulled out my Penny Black "Carolers" stamp and went to work.
This is also for Saturday's fun INSPIRATION CHALLENGE # 232 - Two Lumps of Sugar and sweet eye candy it was to browse through. When I found this COUNTRY DELIGHT TABLEWARE. Well I knew today's project was in the bag. LOL.
I also included Friday's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 12 - It's In the Spot spotlighting technique as well as Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 270 - Edge Distresser since I had such kaotic mornings before work. I hate missing out on good challenges. My focal image was stamped in Momento Tuxedo black then the spotlight image as well. I cut the spotlight image out using a 1 inch circle punch and a red cs matt with a 1 1/8 inch punch. I distressed the red base and red matt on the focal image with my edge distresser.
For my CASE I changed the image, colors, used Argyle Cuttlebug folder instead of swiss dots, I used yellow ribbon and tied it on the opposite side and distressed the edges. Hope you like it.

Oh Neva, first I want to say this is just the cutest card ever, the image is adorable and love the spotlighting. Neva, I am so honored that you cased one of my cards, you are one of the sweetest stampers I know and you were such a delight to work with. I made so many mistakes on my TH challenge cards and you never ever got upset and always had the kindest comments. I am so happy we got to meet, even if it was just for a few minutes. BTW, I am still waiting to see if Jay Leno is going to do the Publishers Clearing House! LOL!
