CASE Study...Believe in Your Dreams

Hello and welcome to our fourth and final week at CASE Study with muse Torico! I've been enjoying her clean and cute designs and interpreting them in a way so that translates into my own signature style. I had somewhat of a hard time with this card in particular, sometimes I'm okay with less is more, but this one just felt like it was missing some allure:

 I was drawn to the butterflies, the neutral palette and the 'dream theme'. I CASEd all these aspects while changing up the design, stamps and adding an embossed design. I achieved that background look by inking up the inside of the embossing folder with Creamy Caramel ink and then running it through my Big Kick. The butterflies are coated with a layer of copper colored glitter and folded up a bit for some dimension.

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 CSC110), 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!
