sweet Mary Fish CASE...

as soon as i saw this card, i knew i wanted to make it.
and trust me, i rarely CASE (Copy And Share Everywhere) anything exactly.
i usually use what i see as an idea and then alter it.

but NOT this one...
i saw it here on Stampin Pretty, which is my favorite blog
that Mary Fish is the owner/artist of.

this was her card:

and this was the one my Club made:

as you can see, there are a FEW differences:
1. my crappy photography skills 
(man, i wish i could have crisp clean white based photos, like Mary's)
2. it says 'Happy Birthday' instead of Embrace life.
3. i had to use BuildABrads instead of TT buttons.

besides that, it is the same and i love it.
love the colors. 
love the look.
love this Punched Posies Stamp Set.

and if anyone can tell me WHY my photos are
tinted PINK, instead of WHITE
i will send you the Stamp Set of your choice.
(up to $25 in value)...
