ShowCASe your style SYSC#5: Theme

Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas?

It's time for a new challenge at showCASe your challenge, and this fortnight we have a theme challenge for you.

You have until midnight EST on Wednesday 7th January to join in and link up your creation.  A randomly selected winner will receive a Whimsy Stamps $10 gift certificate (this will be increased to $15 if the winning entry uses Clearly Whimsy Stamps products) and the DT will also choose their Style Queen and Style Favourites, so plenty of chances to win a prize or be chosen as a favourite!

I used my Thanks large word die and Thanks a Million stamp set for my card, together with a couple of not-yet-released products - Basic Backgrounds & Borders 2 stamp set and Basic Border Trio die set. These new sets are part of our Clearly Whimsy Stamps January 2015 release, so you're getting an early sneak peek, hehe!!  I embossed the diagonal stripes using my new WOW Metallic Gold Rich Sparkle glitter embossing powder (ref WS07).  When I was designing this card, I was originally going to use silver, but I prefer the warmth the gold gives with the colder teal and purple.

It's no secret that CAS(E) this Sketch! is one of my most favourite CAS challenges, and their current sketch #104 is running until 8th January, so I just had to join in!

That's it from me for today! Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by today!
