CASE Study...Halloween Greetings

Hi and welcome to our 3rd week at CASE Study with Muse Torico! Our inspiration card this week sure is a super cute one, using the most adorable images, papers and stitch work. I decided to go in a more vintage, ephemera type direction and I remembered that I purchased these darling vintage images from an Etsy shop last year. Here's my card based on the one pictured below it:

I kept the design 'relatively' the same, instead of a stamped image I used a digital one, I added a floral cluster where the sentiment is and also machine stitched the perimeter. I changed up the colors, theme and I added some sweet vintage ribbon, paper flowers, a Zva flourish and some pearl stick pins. The sentiment is from Verve's Boo to You set and I dropped the stamp as I was about to stamp with it, so the sentiment got smudged. Oh, well. :)

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 CSC109), 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. Love this vintage image Andrea and your trademark floral prettiness! Have a great day ;)

  2. How pretty! I love the postcard image. I don't know why I don't think to try that especially since I can't seem to color well with markers. Love how you placed the crystal flourish and sentiment. A lovely card to send to someone!

  3. Ваууу... какая прелесть!

  4. Beautiful vintage card!!! Love that crystal scroll!!

  5. Andrea, this is beautiful! The smudge looks like it's supposed to be there~
