Happy Little Stampers - March CASE the Designer Challenge

Hi everybody! I can't believe its March already, time is just slipping away from me at the moment. It does mean though that its time for a new 'designer' at the Happy Little Stampers - March CASE the Designer Challenge.

I'm even more excited about this month's challenge because we get to CASE a card by my bloggie friend Kim from Cupcakes, Cards and Kim.   I'm sure you will have come across Kim in Blogland, she belongs to several Design Teams, is a sewing genius and she can create a card for any occasion!! This is the card she gave us to CASE this month:

Isn't this exquisite?? She has put so much time into this card, I love all the little details and the scenes within the boxes are so sweet. I can imagine our Gallery is going to be overloaded with many fabulous entries this month!!

I loved the idea of the square blocks on the card front and got carried away designing a card that would be perfect for my daughter to give to her cat-loving best friend:

I started off my die-cutting the '3 window panels' from the card front, attaching a panel of white CS behind the negative spaces and inlaying the panels back in. I stamped all the images on white CS, coloured with pencils and used the matching dies to cut them all out. I adhered them to the card and stamped the sentiment in black. Such a simple card to make!!

The '3 window panel' dies are from Pretty Pink Posh. The stamps and matching dies are from Die-Versions 'Cats Meow'. 

I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.

You have until March 31st to link your projects to the Happy Little Stampers - March CASE the Designer Challenge, hopefully plenty of time for you to enter maybe more than once! And if your needing any help with inspiration, the rest of the Design Team have some incredible projects on the blog to help you. I can't wait to see what you come up with in the Gallery!

Take care
