CASE @ WMS

Claire @ Waltzingmouse Stamps is challenging us to CASE a card from the Grand Calibur
three day party that finished up over there on Sunday, the 23rd.
This was a no brainer for me since Anya had a one layer clean and simple card that
looked easy and easy to CASE...Copy And Steal Everything!
She used Kraft paper....I did, too!
She used a Spellbinder....I did, too!
I just realized....she used....'love you'....too!
Her hearts were heart stamps!
My hearts were leaves (teardrop shapes stamped x 2)....made to look like hearts!
(Did you see her shadow box card, too? Amazing...right?)
Anya added glitter/sparkle to her hearts...I added bling!
DH's bday is one week before Vday...this will be the card. 
Yes, it has a bow, but you know what...his gifts get bows, too!
AND I have never heard him complain about a bow on a gift.......
why should a bow on a card be any different?
I added knots to the bow strings....can we call that masculine?
Thanks for coming by!
This was a great challenge...
GREAT....EASY.....and a STEAL!!!!
I used Fired Brick distressed ink for all the stamping.
Punched two holes to string the ribbon and tie the bow.
The stamps were from Teeny Trees...the two different size leaves to make the two sizes of hearts....
Vintage Circles Small, Nestie friendly ....... the focal image.

Made me laugh, bows are fine on gifts and cards for men. Love the elegance of this one, really need to go look at those WM Stamps.
