Life is in the Little Things

Morning all! Another week at CASE Study...alas our last with super fabulous Donna Mikasa. Today's card is CAS and fun and bold and colorful and, and, and....mine is quite the opposite. :)

I decided to go with the pink flower theme, though mine muted down quite a bit and the sequins, though I changed mine to crystals. I wanted to steer my card away from CAS and more towards the vintage style...check. Maja Design papers are perfect for achieving this. The paper line is used here is the Vintage Autumn Basics collection.

Here's Donna's lovely card:

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 CSC176), 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!
