Oh Happy Day!

I made the following layout using Sketch #217 from Sketches in Thyme as seen above.
The paper is Bo Bunny 12" Serenity Dot. The blue paper is from Colorbok Primary Pizazz 12" x 12" Textured Cardstock Pad, the doily was a RAK, the title- Oh Happy Day is from a journaling set from my stash, and the journaling tag is also from my stash.
close-up of journaling tag- May 7, 2016, both pictures were taken after Haylee's college graduation from UNCW. The picture on the left is of Mr Ray, my mom, Haylee, me, and Dustin. The picture on the right is of Dustin, Haylee, and Mr Ray. I decided not to add the top and bottom borders since the paper already has some border printed on it.

CASE a Card Blog Hop

Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on. At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike. Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets.
This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too.
We took one card created by Alicia and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger. You get the idea. 
When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first.
You should have arrived here from (Theresa's blog). If you would like to start at the beginning visit Alicia's blog (

Now on with the hop!

I CASEd Theresa's card shown below. I went with the butterfly and the blue mist to create my card below hers.

I used Recollections A2 card base and added part of a 4" x 6" photo mat and part of a 6" x 6" Studio Calico Lemon Lush Paper, Recollections trim, and the embroidered floral applique is from The Vintage Rose Emporium. The word congratulations is from The Cutting Cafe Everyday Block Sentiments. I fussy cut it out of the wedding block. I'm going to use this card as a wedding card for my cousin and his bride in October. You can see the blue mist is a part of the paper at the bottom.
 That's all I have for today. The next and last stop is Card A Day Challenge Blog.
Thanks so much for hopping with us! Here's the entire line up in case you get lost:
