Have you seen the new Limited Edition set from Clear and Simple Stamps?  It is for 2012 customers, and you get more stamps depending on how much you have spent this year.  Today, the DT is using this great set to CASE their favorite cards from the year.  We could CASE our own project, or one from one of the other designers.

I chose an awesome card from Laura Bassen.  When I think of her, I think of plaid!  She has done some amazing cards with hand-stamped plaid, including this beauty:

Oh man- how could I even attempt to CASE this? It's perfect!  I went with a thinner plaid, using diagonal stripes in green and coral:

The "JOY" was embossed in white over the plaid.  The layout was kept pretty much the same.  Laura, I hope I did okay!! :)

As a bonus, I have two more.  I love this card from Elena:

..and here's my interpretation:

For the card base, I used the new metallic paper from CSS in white pearl.  It's photographing slightly pink, but it is definitely a neutral pearl.  I love how heavy it is- perfect for a card base!

Last is a great card from Laurie:

I love the way she used an imprint plate for the background, and left so much white space. I kept a lot of the design elements the same on this one too!

When I found out that the group challenge was "CASE of Joy," I wanted to CASE every designer on the CSS DT!!  I had big plans to make lots and lots of cards....but sadly I could only manage these three.   

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else made:
