Did you see our CASEplorations post on January 1st? In case you did and said to yourself "Oh, I have to CASE that gorgeous card!", and then forgot about it ... here's your reminder ;) Join us in CASEing this wonderful creation by Laura Bassen of Doublestick Heaven, won't you?

We have tweaked the challenge a little bit for 2016. We'll still be sharing one amazing card from blogland to CASE each month. We're still sharing our CASEs with you on the first of the month. We are asking you to join us by CASEing Laura's card and hooking your project(s) up in the CASEplorations gallery by the end of the month. Easy peasy.

We've tweaked the prizes too. The team will vote for a winner who will receive a $15 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store OR a 3x5 stamp set. Two runners up will receive a $5 gift certificate.

Ready for a couple more takes on Laura's card?

The first is a second CASE Laura did of her card, using Bubbles this time.

In case you've been wondering how Laura colors her embossing paste, take a look at this video she did a while back.

And here's a take by Monika, copying elements of Laura's card and even carrying the "ombre" look through to her sentiment!.

Shery has inked through a stencil too, and then given it her own "Shery" touch.

So, how would you go about CASEing Laura's lovely leaf card? We would love to see in the CASEplorations gallery. You can read the challenge rules here. You can see the original post and gallery here. The link is open until the end of the day January 31st!
