CASE Study...Hugs and Smiles

Happy Thursday morning, CASE Study friends! It's our second week with multi-talented muse, Joni Nina Andaya! Today's card is full of beautiful which I've chosen to illustrate on my card, but to a smidgen lesser degree....

I wanted to focus on the colors, but concentrate them in a smaller area. I also gleaned the "Hugs and ..." sentiment from Joni's card. I added a couple of punched butterflies, flowers and a leaf to mimic the bright colors. The rest of the background is muted using Maja Design's Vintage Autumn collection papers.

Here's Joni's card:

 I modeled my sketch after this week's Mojo Monday design:

Want to see how the other CASE Study design team members were inspired?

March Guest Designers:

Kate Lorenzini

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 CSC182), 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!
