CASE Study...Birthday Wishes

Morning CASE Study fans! It's been a while (about a week) since I've posted...eeek! Card making has been such a huge part of my life for the past few years, but I have to say that lately other things have taken priority in my life, namely work and starting a new business, as well as training for an 8 mile mud run in September. I hope that when the summer slows down a bit, I'll be able to get back into a regular routine for posting, but before I go getting all sad about my lack of 'happy-time-card-making', next week is going to be a posting blitz for hold on tight! :)
Ahem...back to the task at hand...we're into our amazing 3rd week with Jocelyn Olson and today's card is a cute one...and one that I chose to draw my inspiration from the bright, cheery colors...hmm...which I automatically muted :)

Here's the sample we're working with:

Want to see how the other CASE Study design team members were inspired?
Here's the list of the other ladies' blog:
Our July Guestie:
Tracey McNeely

Now all you have to do is play 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 CSC151), 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!

  1. Andrea this is a gorgeous card. I love the flowers and the beautiful lace.

  2. Fabulous case as always. And now you have me VERY curious about what business you are starting! Can you share - hint, hint :) I've been enjoying my summer with the kids so much and back at doing Billy Blank's Tae Bo to get into decent shape that card making has taken a back seat for me too. Hats off to you for doing a mud run too! Can't wait to see the pictures :) Hugest of hugs to you my friend.

  3. Girl, what are you up to, starting a new business? Yours, or the store's?

    Lovely card, as always, and looking forward to your blitz next week. :)

  4. Well let me get in line too - business??? Oh we want to know :)

  5. beautiful card, bye from France,

  6. Gorgeous! Love the soft pretty colors and beautiful lace.
