100th post - ppd blog hop

This is my 100th blog post (yay!).  There's no better way to celebrate than hopping with the PTI Paper Dolls for our crafty Idol, Laurie Beth!!  Congrats on making it as far as the top ten!!  Now, Laurie is one hard girl to CASE - every change looks wrong since her designs are perfect to begin with! :)  Since I wanted to try out an uninked set, Botanical Sillhouettes, I picked this card here.  So then my card for Laurie:

I love Laurie's Mat Stack 3 window but I don't have that die.  I tried Mat Stack 4 & 6, but they were both too big.  Fillable Frame 8 had a lovely shape but was small for the space so I added the stamped frame.  I struggle with CAS - all that empty space made me just run for my woodgrain impression plate. :)  

Laurie, you are one talented gal!  Congratulations!
Now, hop on over to see what else the Dolls have for you today, you may have come from Amy's blog, so head to Kristin's next:
