Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Birthday, Happy CASE Study!

Happy Thanksgiving CASE Study and blog friends! Here in the US we're spending the day preparing lots of food and preparing to consume lots of food...I personally am taking my family over to my mother's house for a wonderful meal. I will be going over there in my pajamas cos I want to be comfortable all day long! We have one final week of delightful inspiration from Keisha Campbell...I was inspired by her card to make my project a card within a card...take a lookie:

The above photo shows the outside of the card with the smaller card on the inside.

This photo is of the inner card.

Here they are together. I used Maja Design's brand new Vintage Frost Basics collection. The 'Joy' stamp was released yesterday by Verve...this set is called Christmas Joy. The inner card is also stamped with a sentiment from this set. The inner photo was cut from a page of  Maja's papers and I outlined it with some Zva Creative pearls.

Here's Keisha's card:

Want to see how the other CASE Study design team members were inspired?
Here's the list of the other ladies' blog:
November Guestie:

If you'd like to play along with CASE Study's challenge this are the deets:
1. Create a paper crafting project (card, layout, off-the-page item), based on provided inspiration (being a featured creation, made by our Muse).
2. Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code CSC168), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
3. A new challenge is being posted every Thursday at 12.01 AM EST, and you've got until midnight on Tuesday to submit your entry.
4. You may enter as many times as you like, but you're asked to provide a newly designed project.
5. We will choose the authors of four most impressive creations, who will be awarded the Winner and Top 3 awards. In addition, there might be a person chosen randomly from the list of players, who will receive the prize provided by the sponsor - if there is one.
We will announce the winners on Wednesday.
6. If you'd like to be considered for our next month-long Guest Designer, put "GD" next to your name when linking up your project (only valid on every second challenge of the month).
7. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

And before I go, I want to wish my sweet daughter Analise a very happy 14th birthday! We actually share the same birthday, I had her on my 29th. I just love her more than anything! ♥♥♥
