Repeat Impressions - CASEing Karen

Today's Repeat Impressions challenge is to CASE Rock Star Karen.  Here is Karen's card:
The Repeat Impressions design team members have CASED Karen, and we challenge you to do the same!  Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details and for the Rock Stars' creations.  Create your own card, upload to your blog or on-line gallery, and link back to the RI blog.  One random participant will win a full sheet of unmounted rubber!!  You do not need to use RI stamps, but if you do, you will be entered twice - how about that!  Here are links to the Rock Stars' blogs: 

I took a little liberty with Karen's card.  I had to turn her oval panel sideways, and I eliminated the pearls.  My stamps, of course, are from Repeat Impressions.  They both can be found on this page.  I paper-pieced the bells and colored the rest of the image with Copic markers.  I added some of the purple to the patterned paper, to match the roses.  I used an EK Success border punch for the center matting and Long Oval Nestabilities for the sentiment panel, which is mounted on foam squares.  We'd love to see what you come up with!

EDITED TO ADD:  I'm also submitting this for the Flourishes challenge "A Cut Above the Rest" - to use some sort of a cut edge.  The border punch works!

Also, don't forget about your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from our WHAT IF? Wednesday Challenge, found here, and a chance to win a $35 gift certificate from our Blogaversary Hop, found here.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Hi, Lynette! I'm so glad you could enter this in Flourishes Cut Above challenge. You know I love your style. The paper pieced wedding bells look wonderful, and the punched border is so delicate and pretty. I really love the sentiment, too. Have a great day, and I'll see you again soon!
