FS Marisa and More

Finally...I'm here with a card. Seems like it has been a while. I cased this card for the Featured Stamper on  Splitcoaststampers this week. The FS is Marisa aka whiterockmama and she is a blogging pal and good friend and I am so happy to see her honored. She has a fabulous gallery and I chose this card to case. I went with a Valentine card instead of the Christmas ornament
.
Also, my card is for the Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers to use red, white, silver or gray, and a dessert option of a ribbon. I have more gold than silver but there is silver in the brad.

I used some gorgeous white paper from a local scrapbook store and it didn't have a name on it but it was already embossed. I crimped my small piece of designer paper but don't think the crimping shows. My punched heart layer is topped with a piece of white cardstock and used Flower Soft gold stickers for the chain to hang the heart. Added a couple ribbons and brad and that's it.

I am entering my card into these challenges:
Craft Your Passion Challenge #39: Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft Challenge: #123-White is White (make your project or card predominately white)
Southern Girls Challenge-#9: Anything Goes

Recipe:
No stamps and no ink
Paper: Stampin'Up! Cherry Cobbler, white embossed cardstock with unknown name from local scrapbook store, PTI white cardstock, other designer paper is unknown
Accessories: Flower Soft gold sticker for chain, Fiskars heart border punch, Say it With Studs brad by Prima Marketing, sheer gold ribbon, Stampin'Up! Olive Green grosgrain ribbon, Spellbinders Classic Heart die cut

I love the dangling heart on that delicate gold chain! What a wonderful idea! It reminds me of a necklace in the jewelry store window! I love the blow and bling and that heart-punched border is the perfect accent for it all! You've done Marisa proud :)

You've done our Marisa proud with this CASE, Benz! It is smart of you to choose a "love" theme with Valentine's just around the corner. But I still want to keep on making Christmas cards!! You know there is a new challenge blog called Jingle Belles, which SmilynStef helped begin. So there is our excuse to STILL create holiday cards all thru the year!
