Stamplorations CASE card

It is SUMMER here in Las Vegas, we are in the 100s today, I just want to stay at home and craft, good thing is that I am on summer break, my teaching schedule is mostly off except a few private students, therefore, I can spend more time crafting and blogging! YAY!

Stamplorations is celebrating their 5th birthday this month!

one of the fun going on there is to pick a card from the DT's sample to CASE, you know I like to do CASE card, so I picked Helen' Gullett's card from today's (6/3/18) post.

I used the same layout as Helen's....

I also used the stamp frame die from CUTplorations (Stamplorations)

the stamp is one of Shery Russ Designs.....

 I am linking this card to the CASE challenge at Stamplorations.

Thanks for stopping by.....

PaperlessPost has tons of cards for all occasion, they are all so beautiful and I have no problem finding one I like, just look at the choices HERE!
They even come with matching envelope, how sweet!
