Feeling Brand New

Happy Thursday! At CASE Study it's time for another card by our June Muse Lisa Spangler! I have to admit that I didn't have any sentiments even close to the one that Lisa used and I de-CAS-ified my version of her card here:

This card was made with Maja Design's Walking in the Forest collection. The colors were a toned down version of Lisa's which muted is much more my style. I roughed up all the edges, used some of Verve's new ribbon collection called Summer Sailing and some lovely Zva crystal flourishes. The butterfly image was cut out of a sheet of the Walking in the Forest papers. The flower is from Prima and the bubbly accents was cut off of an arrangement in my home. (From the back of the arrangement ;)

Here's Lisa's fabulous card:

Here's a peek at the collection of papers I used:

Now all you have to do is play along with us!
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 CSC146), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below. 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 the authors of 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. If you'd like to be considered for our next month-long Guest Designer, put "GD" next to your name when linking up your project (only valid on every second challenge of the month).
7. Above all, have fun - and be inspired!

  4. I LOVE your muted interpretation of the challenge! I know exactly what you mean - I tend to always slightly alter colors to a softer, lighter, more muted shade also! Gorgeous creation!
