There's a fabulous new challenge site, called CASE-ing the Catty, which I have been itching to play along with since its inception last week.  I wasn't organised enough to join in the first round, but this week's challenge suits me really well.

The challenge is to draw inspiration from the Stampin' Up! catalogue - this week, it's from the Memory Keeping section of the catalogue, from pages 24-41.  I was immediately drawn to a project (below) on page 38 of our Aus/NZ catalogue - a great colour combo of Night of Navy, Soft Sky and Crumb Cake.  The use of the World Map stamp, and Tiny Triangles embossing folder, also appealed to me.

I've made a card for my intrepid niece, who's about to head off to Spain to study for 7 months.  She will be away for her 21st birthday, and for Christmas, which is a bit sad for us - but hopefully she'll be making some awesome memories on her overseas adventure!  Here's what I've made for Em:

Stamps: World Map, World of Dreams, Be the Star
Card: Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Naturals Ivory
Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento inkpad, Soft Sky and Crumb Cake stampin' pads
Other: On Film Framelits, Hearts border punch, Itty Bitty accents punch, 2" Circle punch, Regals candy dot and Candy Dot brad base, Natural Cotton Ribbon, Tiny Triangles embossing folder, sponge dauber
