CASE Study...Hi Friend

Hello CASE Study friends! Welcome to another installment of our challenge...and inspiration courtesy of Teri Anderson! Today's card is super fun, super cute...however, I put my own spin on it, featuring some neutrals speckled with black accents...yum!

I started following Teri's design but wandered off onto my own path. Sometimes inspiration is just a jumping board, yes? I purchased this flower when I was away last weekend and couldn't wait to add it to a card. To dress it up a bit more, I layered a Whimsey Circle underneath it and added some tulle accents. There is also a strip of coordinating crochet trim/velvet center ribbon peeking out. I also purchased some Copper and Onyx Pearl Liquid Pearls and had to use them here as well. Paper is from one of my favorite collections, Vintage Timeless by Kaisercraft. Sentiment is courtesy of Verve's Lean on Me set and is stamped and matted on a Banner Bundle die set.

Here's Teri's sweet 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 CSC130), 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!

  1. Loving the flower and the die behind it. That sentiment set is one of my faves too. Great case :)

  2. Simply divine! That's a gorgeous die and I love how you've paired it with the flower. You are truly a master of the colour combos. I just love the contrasts you achieve and how it all pops. I've saved this card to my inspiraton folder. :) Pxx

  3. How pretty! Gorgeous flower and I love all the pearl accents.

  4. so pretty! bye from France, Pitchoune

  5. Very pretty card Andrea! Love the flower and embellishments you used. I don't know if I would have the patience to add as many liquid pearls as you did.

  6. I've been noticing that those liquid pearls have become a favorite with you. Yours are so precise and even!! Guess I need to practice, practice, practice to make good use of the ones I have because I love the look you are getting with them!!
    Terrific card, Andrea!!


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