CASE Study...No Worries

Morning blog friends! We're into our second week at CASE Study with project extraordinaire, Elena Roussakis! Such a cute inspiration picture for today...I've transformed it into my own 'EwenStyle' format of card making...lots of muted colors, pretty flowers and vintage accents:

Using Verve's newly released Each Day stamp set, I stamped the inner oval and then adorned it with pearls, dimensionals and decorative die cuts. The bow started out off-white, I took some Copics and colored it to match the flowers on the Vintage Summer Basics paper by Maja Desingn. I sewed all the panels and then added some lovely Zva Creative pearl flourishes to the finished product. Here's Elena's project for today:

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

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 CSC161), 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!

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day!
