Casing Connie Collins with Calls for a Celebration!

Today I have a really sweet card that I made special for my friend Ellen.  Ellen has had a really hard past 3-4 years and yet still takes time to bless others.
She actually used to write for a few greeting card companies and appreciates a card in the mail.  When I saw this sentiment, I knew I would use it on a card for her.

(If you would remember her in your prayers, I know she would appreciate it.)

Anyway, I decided to case the lovely Connie Collins for this weeks challenge over at the Global Design Project.  Connie is one of the few that can take floral images and make me want to buy the stamps or paper! She's quite the enabler and does beautiful work with florals.

I decided to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) her card by incorporating the same Share What You Love DSP and some stitching.

I added some stitches with my sewing machines and it coordinates nicely with these beautiful new Stitched Labels Framelits.  I don't even think I noticed these framelits at first, but after seeing so many other demos use them, I ordered them!

The sentiment is from the set Calls for a Celebration.  I had purchased this set for the other sentiments and didn't even notice this one until I took it out of the box!  Talk about a sweet bonus!

I also added some fringe with the crumb cake dip and added some extra detail to the background layer with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

(This folder is a must have!)

This card is already in the mailbox on its way to my friend.

Take a moment and send a card this week - be a blessing a send some "paper joy!"
