This week's featured stamper at SplitcoastStampers is the always fabulous, Beate! Her gallery is packed full of wonderful cards and I chose to CASE this card. I changed the stamps, paper, and embellishments for my card and I wish Stampin' Up! still had Maine Blueberry paper available - I love these colors together! One of these days I'll get some current paper to show off - I'm just trying to work my way out of the piles of old paper in my desk at the moment.
So can you tell what I left off of this card??? Do you know?? Ribbon! It's a rare day when I don't use any ribbon on a card - ha!
One of the blogs I visit all the time is Jen Tapler's and she has some yummy blog candy to give away - you only need to send her a brand new, never seen before card. She's going to collect all the cards and put them together for her Stamp Out Alzheimer's event in May. You can see all the details at her blog, HERE. Such a wonderful idea!

Enjoy your day -
