CASE Study...So Graceful

Morning CASE Study fans and blog friends! Happy Thursday to you! This is our 3rd week with wonderfully talented Keisha Campell! Here is a card I made using Maja Design's Vintage Autumn Basics collection and a Verve stamp...shocking, I know. :)

I wanted to keep the overall theme of the flower/leaf placement, the texture of the burlap (though mine is a bit more 'holey') and the stripes. I had this nest embellishment left over from when I did a tutorial, so I thought it would look sweet next to the line of blue flowers. I added a Zva Creative white crystal flourish and a strip of vintage lace, as well.

Here's Keisha's darling card:

Want to see how the other CASE Study design team members were inspired?
Here's the list of the other ladies' blog:
November 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 CSC167), 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!
