A VERY Late Prettie Challenge

I finally got around to doing the Prettie challenge that Jessie issued us last week, to have at least three embellishments on a card. The card I had started for it I decided not to use because I just couldn't figure out how to put another embellishment on it. But than I remembered this card of Charmaine's that I always loved and wanted to try someday. So this is what I came up with.

And if you count the liquid pearls I used on Sophia's necklace, that's FOUR embellishments on this card! How about that, huh? The paper piercing, ribbon and crystal on Sophia's flower are the other three. Now I have to ask you ladies, can anyone explain to me what CASEing is? I know that your taking a card that someone made and making it your own kind of, but are there certain rules and what does CASEing stand for? And what I've done with Charmaine's card, is this considered CASEing? If someone could explain all of this to this poor newbie I would much appreciate it!:-)

Thank you for all your sweet comments about Laddu's dog, Portia. It looks like she actually might be ok for awhile. She had basically lost control of her back legs and could not walk at all. It was so sad to see her just laying there in pain like that. But the doctor gave her two shots of cortisone and a couple days later she started walking around on her own! She kind of walks like a drunk dog, but at least she's moving! Its so good to see her her happy self again. The vet was really happy with her progress, so we'll just have to see how she does from here.

The engagement party was really fun. I met a lot of his family for the first time and everyone was really great, so that was a big relief!:-) Here are a few pics for those that are interested.

This is me and one of my best friends Neelum. We met in the 4th grade and have stayed friends ever since:-)

This is a pic of my parents and 'little' brother after they had finished their part in the ceremony. As you can see from Laddu's face he's really enjoying all of this;-)

This is after the chinni (I'm sure I just butchered the spelling on that) was put on me.

And here we are with all my future in laws:-)

I also wanted to send out a huge congratulations to Jessie for being chosen Featured Stamper on SCS! I'm still learning what SCS is all about, but I do know this is a huge honor! Congrats Jessie! I'll be back tomorrow with the challenge that I gave the prettie girls, to make a mini album!
