CASE Study...All Things Grow With Love

Morning CASE Study fans! Happy Halloween to all of my American visitors! Today is also our last challenge with super talented Elena Roussakis and this week's inspiration picture is truly...inspiring! First, here's a look at my creation based on her photo below:

Using Maja Design's Vintage Autumn Basics collection, I distressed all paper edges and added a few bows and ribbons to enhance the design. I gleaned the idea of using a banner on Elena's card below and I achieved mine with Verve's Pennant Trim die. The sentiment tag was simply cut out of a sheet of Heritage papers from the Maja line. I also added some of Verve's Pastel Sequin Mix to the tag and the sentiment is also from Verve, this set is called Bloom and Grow
Here's Elena's project:

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

If you'd like to play along with CASE Study's challenge this 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 CSC164), 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!
