C for CASE the card

Good morning everyone!
Emma here with a brand new challenge for you

The Theme: CASE the card!

I know, I know, it sounds a little scary but I'm going to break it down and make it easy.

1.  Look through the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and pick one of the DT's cards that you love.
2.  Make your own great Christmas card based on the card you picked. You could be inspired by a sketch, a gorgeous colour combo or a fab embellishment.

Personally, I found picking just one card to CASE the hardest part - they were all fab!

PS - you can snag this Png file and add it to the card/creation you are going to CASE so people can see you're CASE-ing a card/creation.

Our sponsor this week is Saturated Canary, one of the hottest stamp companies around!

Saturated Canary 

Hello! My name is Krista Smith. 
I have been drawing and doodling my whole life...as far back as I can remember! Over the last year and a half, I have been selling it on Etsy. I was approached to draw stamps for Sugar Nellie, a stamp company based in Scotland. After designing only rubber for a year, I decided to branch out a bit into the digital world:). As an artist, I appreciate the versatility of digi's for the stamper. I also like releasing stamps that are a little more obscure or unique. Monsters, nerds with big glasses...even a mermaid:). Those ones are really fun for me to draw! After opening up my digi shop in the beginning of September, I've been busy filling orders:). I am really thrilled and very humbled that ladies are so receptive to my designs and seem to enjoy coloring them a lot! I am so inspired by these amazing colorists!! I have met so many wonderful, talented ladies through this business and look forward to building new friendships, too! My personal blog, Saturated Canary, is filled with bits of my family life, artwork, and a slight obsession with fashion;). I also run a new challenge/ inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge with my amazing design team. I'd love to meet you and be inspired by your own creations! Do stop by and say hello!:) 
Prize is 2 digi's from Krista's shop for the winner.
