CASE Study #105

Hello friends!  I'm back from vacation just in time to share a card for the latest CASE Study challenge.  We've been celebrating CASE Study's 2nd anniversary all month long, and this week's special challenge is to CASE one of our participants!

We have so many fantastic designers submitting their creations to the challenge every week, so it was tough to narrow it down to one participant and only one card, but I finally settled on this beauty by TesaB of Tesa's Scrap:

Swoon, right?  I love the window scene with the banner behind it, the newsprint, and the natural twine, so I used similar elements on my card.

I had this chartreuse window die cut that Renee sent with our first Christmas kit, so I used it to make a scene with a fall tree from Paper Smooches' Autumn Groves.  For the background, I used woodgrain patterned paper from A Muse Studio and a vintage book page, which includes a Robert Frost poem entitled "Tree at My Window".

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Simply Chartreuse), Bazzill (brown), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Patterned paper:  A Muse Studio (woodgrain)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Autumn Groves, Sentiment Sampler)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, So Saffron, Peach Parfait), Copic markers
Tools:  Memory Box (window die), Papertrey Ink (banner die)
Accessories:  The Ribbon Carousel (twine), thread
Other:  vintage book page

Check out which of our regular players the rest of the DT have CASEd this week, then spend some time perusing our past challenge galleries to find inspiration from one of the many fabulous entries we've had in the last 2 years.

Time to catch up on some sleep!  Thanks for stopping by today!
