CASE Study...Happy Anniversary

Happy Thursday CASE Study friends! Looking out my craft room window last week, I saw the most beautiful site! It’s Spring time here in New Jersey and my favorite tree in the yard is in full bloom…a Weeping Cherry tree. Every bough is bent over with an enumerable amount of blooms and it’s just a sight for the soul! And with another lovely card by Maile Belle's for us to CASE this week, I had more than enough inspiration to go around! With those visions in mind, I went for Maja Design’s Vintage Spring Basics, namely the 1st and 4th of May papers. Here’s what I came up with: 

The sentiment is courtesy of Verve's latest release, this one is from On Occasion. I fussy cut an image of trailing flowers from the 1st of May papers. I then added some Star Dust Stickles to the middles of the flowers for a little sparkle. There’s a length of crushed silk ribbon, tied into a bow and adorned with the same color fabric flower. I also added a strip of lace and pearls as well. The edges are all distressed.

Here's Maile's lovely 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 CSC142), 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.
