CASE Study...Hello Sunshine

Hi and welcome to this week's CASE Study with our current muse, Teri Anderson! Teri's style is fun, whimsical and for the most part CAS, pretty much the complete opposite of my tendencies. I had fun stepping out of my comfort suit to draw inspiration from her designs. This week's card had me struggling a bit, but in the dead of night with a picture of her card displayed in front of me, I came up with this creation:

I wanted to keep the horizontal lines, the fun flowers and the bright colors. However, I changed my paper strips completely horizontal, used patterned paper and cut my design down to one flower. The flower ended up being bigger than I had anticipated when I set out to make it, so there was really only room for one. To make that flower, I cut (7) 1" inch strips and (7) 1 & 1/2" strips, folded them over, glued them into loops and then stacked them in a circular fashion. I layered both sizes and then added a pre-made paper flower ($1 bin!) in the center. The sentiment is from Verve's Doodled Occasions set. Each patterned paper strip is raised up and layered onto a length of Doily Lace border punched paper.

Here's Teri's inspiration card:

Here's the down-low on CASE Study's challenge:
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 CSC129), 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!
