Casing Laura

DSCF3532

Laura Frederickson's blog was one of the first I visited when I began blogging, and she was just as sweet as could be when I emailed her for some advice!  Her blog is almost at 300,000 hits, so she & her friend Julie Koerber (another warm & friendly blogger!), whose blog is also around the corner from that milestone, are giving away blog candy!  To qualify for Laura's, you have to check out her SCS gallery and CASE one of her cards.  You can see all about it here.  I chose this card, but since I have been seeing all the cute Whippersnapper cards Danielle has been making, I went back to my Good Dog set for images to make this card:

I changed a few things, but I liked the layout and I hadn't used my spiral punch for a while, so that was fun!  I do not have Copics, so I had to make do with inks and an aquapainter.  Make sure you check out Laura's blog--her work is just lovely!  And be sure to come back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown Challenge--it will knock your socks off!
