CASE-ing Alice

A certain little boy is potty-training, and I've been wanting to send along a card to him for encouragement.  This morning, I saw this post at Alice's blog, and knew it was perfect for what I wanted.  Alice is a master at color and design - make sure you look at her other posts while you're at her blog.

 I won these Purple Onion stamps awhile ago, and their style is exactly right for this card. I used bright primary colors, and CASED Alice's card almost completely.  Thanks, my friend - I ADORE this design!


supplies: kraft card base, design papers from The Dollar Tree (blue), pink paislee "Hometown Summer", Purple Onion Designs The Bird House and Hearts on a String, Hero Arts CL155 Playful Animals (sentiments), Susan Branch slphabet stickers, Die-namics cloud die (from Carol)
