Time Out Challenge #12 - CASE (with your own twist)

Hi all!  The new challenge over at Time Out Challenges is to CASE this fabulous card by Anita and add your own twist.
So here's my take on it.  I chose to do a Christmas card because of this new Tim Holtz Holiday Knit stencil.  I colored some embossing paste with blue ink and masked off a row of the stencil then added the paste to the stencil.  This gave me the row I needed that mimicked Anita's card.  I then cut the word out from navy, white, and light blue paper and adhered them in an offset fashion.  The word "happy" was stamped in navy ink.  I added some enamel dots and some Wink of Stella to the die cut word for some shimmer.
You can see more inspiration from the Design Team on these blogs.  We also are welcoming our Guest Designer Shona this week!
