CASE Study...Hi Friend

Morning CASE Study friends! We have another week of CAS card savant Donna Mikasa! For this week's sample, I decided to CASE the "hello" theme, the colors and the embossing...though I have to say that my card doesn't look anything like Donna's...but I guess that's the point, eh? Derive inspiration while making it totally your own. Ok, here's my attempt:

This was really easy, actually...I just cut out a Detailed Scallops Spellbinders die cut, added some Liquid Pearls around the perimeter...stacked and tucked some various flowers, picks, etc and then embossed a greeting followed by the Zva Creative flourish. Now, I just made it sound like I just whipped this together, but I guess if you have to throw in all of the dawdling, thinking, experimenting and creating...It really wasn't a quick process. :)

Here's Donna's lovely creation:

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

January Guest Designer: Erin Thiem

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 CSC175), 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!
