A Case of CASING!!!

I just couldn't help myself. I saw this card on Deann's blog De Stampin' Corner and I knew I just had to make it. It caught my eye. It is so clean looking, something that I like in a card.

I did change mine a bit. I did not add the organza ribbon, I changed the wording and added a scallop layer with the oval. I also layered the white background. Deann's card was all white.

It was a fun card to make and I have a special friend I am mailing this off to in the morning. I know this card will make her feel better.

For this card I used the Stampin' Up! "God's Blessings". It's a level one hostess set. The wording is from the retired "Friend to Friend" set. I don't give up my word sets quite as easily as I do the image sets. And I was glad I had this set because I couldn't find another set that had the "thinking of you" in a small enough font to fit inside the oval. I feel that you can never have enough word sets!!! I like to make cards blank and add words later to fit the reason I'm sending out the card. That is why I LOVE versatile sets. This "Gods Blessings" set is a very versatile one. I will be sad to see it go. And I will be sad to see the Pink Pirouette card stock go too! It was such a pretty color. But the new colors are fun too! The background was created using a Cuttlebug folder. They are SO fun to play with!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
