Good evening, friends! I'm back with one more card for today, this time for two challenges ending in just a couple of hours. The first is this week's CASE Study with a new April Muse, the fabulously talented Silke Ledlow. I couldn't let the opportunity to CASE one of her cards pass me by! I also used the gorgeous colors from The Play Date Cafe.
Finally, I'll be linking up this card to the Birthday Blog Hop for Elise at the Just Us Girls blog. Elise is amazingly creative and leaves the most wonderful comments on her fellow designers' blogs, and when I saw that the JUGS team was celebrating her birthday I knew I wanted to participate. Elise, this card's for you! Hope you have a fabulous birthday!
I was inspired by the large leaf image, the butterflies, and the use of lots of white cardstock on Silke's card. She always adds wonderful scoring and piercing details, plus perfectly arranged silver pearls, so I knew I wanted to incorporate those elements on my card as well.
The large leaf stamp is from WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, and the butterflies are from Flora & Fauna I. I stamped the leaves in Wild Wasabi and the butterflies in Pacific Point, then overstamped the butterflies using Ranger's Perfect Medium and brushed them with Perfect Pearls to give them some shimmer.
Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise panels are debossed with PTI's Woodgrain impression plate (I think I might need an intervention, I reach for this plate so often!). The sentiment is from WPlus9's Spring Post, stamped in Pacific Point and accented with silver pearls.
