CASEing Charlene!

Hi everyone!  I am the guest Challenge Hostess for this week's SCS Featured Stamper challenge -how fun!!  This week we honor my friend and stamper extraordinaire, Charlene!  Her SCS name is Willow01 and her gallery is full of amazing cards, I hope you have a chance to play along!  I cased this cutie card, You are Simply the Best.  I love the little trio of paper flowers on the side.  WHAT! I can't believe I forgot to add those to my card!  lol!

My card uses Technique Tuesday's cutie set, Long Stemmed Sentiments.  The flower blooms and vase are stamped and cut out.  The sentiment is from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages.   I just love the (new to me) Labels 16 and I thought it's shape was the perfect for this card.  The papers are from Graphic 45, their new Once Upon a Springtime collection (you can get these both at the Stamp Simply Ribbon store).  I have to say, G45 isn't always my style, but there are lots of fabulous prints in this 8x8 pad -I really like it!!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll leave you with a close up picture.
