CASE Study...You're The Best Thing

Hi and welcome to this 101th CASE Study challenge! We're still drawing buku inspiration from our dear Muse this month, Kristii Lockhart and this week's no exception! Well, there is an exception...I went CAS for my card which is a departure from my normal CAC (Cluttered And Complicated). In looking at Kristii's card (pictured below mine) it should be obvious how I was inspired (then again, maybe not!):

I saw this beautiful patterned paper (in a box I had tucked away so goodness knows how old it is) and it reminded me so much of the flower cluster Kristii used as her backdrop for that cutsie little bird. Since the pattern is very busy and the background is very {un}busy...there was little that I could do to add to it. So I left my mitts off of it. (No easy task in and of itself, mind you.) I kept the 'thankful for you in my life' theme, with my stamp from Verve's All About You set, and most of the colors while changing the design, stamps and omitting the bird and medallions. 

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

Here 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 CSC101), and link it to the CASE Study blog with the inlinkz widget. 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 authors of the 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. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  1. Great CAS card - the paper picks up the colours on Kristi's card perfectly! LOL at the CAC acronym :) Way to stretch yourself with CAS! Have a fabulous day!

  2. I'm afraid it isn't buku but beaucoup meaning lots or much in French. Im Canadian and we all take French in school or I'd have no idea!

  3. Inspiration is abundant on every blog I have been on. It is just wonderful to have access to your and all the others too.

  4. I laughed at your coined term "CAC"! I like this CAS beauty very much. :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I always enjoy reading them and appreciate the kind words!
