I love these little Polka Dot Boots.
 
Little True Story. 
So when I met my husband, we fell for each other when it came time to register for dishes,
I looked around and my kitchen was totally white. 
I decided that now I found my WONDERFUL someone,
I needed to "live a little"
Change is sometimes good!
And so ..
we registered for Red with White Polka Dot Dishes!
 
Anywhoo.

I heart THIS!  CASE Study!

Oh I fell HARD for this card
 on the 
CASE Study Challenge this week (see below in the cutely polaroid type frame), 
And HOW!
Reference to 
Our Gang "Little Rascals circa 1930's...(smiles)

I used the Ranger Pearlescents 
to mimic the dimension that the wood gives on the original CASE card.
 
The cocoa brown I used for the feathers is to mimic the lighter color of the stamping (stamped off?)
of the challenge card sentiment banner.


Supplies:
Stamps: Kaiser Kraft Elegance, Stampin Up! Fine Feathers
(the stamp on the end is from an unlabeled set)---No I found it,
It is from American Crafts Clear Sets

Purple Shimmer heavy weight cardstock
 (I bought this lovely purple shimmer paper on Maui! (oh, Yeahhh!)

PEACE for CAS-ual Fridays: Another Red White and Blue!
 
I had been meaning to "test" the Tim Holz Dies that I got a great deal on,
would they work in my big shot?
 
Yes, they did, I had to place another embossing folder atop them,
 and use only the spacer pages, not the base. 
It worked!
 
Happy Memorial Day!

 to try for a watercolor look.
I love the mamelephant stamp line, and the set Smitten is a new little favorite.
