CASE Study #117


Hard to believe, but another Thursday is upon us.  I'm ready for the weekend, how about you?

I hope you'll find some time to play along in this week's CASE Study challenge.  Our Muse this month is Angeline Yong Jeet Leen of The Creation of Creativity, and she's sharing this little beauty with us as inspiration this week:

By Angeline
We're delighted to have a sponsor this week as well:  it's Elizabeta Kushner, whose Etsy shop has some darling digital images and sentiments.  She's offering 3 digital images to one random player this week, so be sure to link up your creation for a chance to win.

For my take on Angeline's sweet card, I wanted to keep the elements of the mother and baby birds, the red and green color combo, and the leafy frame.

I made a less structured "frame" for my sentiment by stamping leaves from Paper Smooches Reflections in the bottom corner and along two sides of my card base.  Some of the leaves are popped up for dimension.

The birds and branch are from WPlus9's Love Birds, and the sentiment comes from Waltzingmouse's Roses in Bloom.  I added some berries from the Reflections set to pull the red color through the rest of the design.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Reflections), WPlus9 Design Studio (Love Birds), Waltzingmouse (Roses in Bloom)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Chocolate Chip)
Tools:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Love Birds dies)

As always, there's an amazing and diverse array of projects offered up by the Design Team this week, so be sure to take a peek.

Thanks for your visit, as always!  I have some fun things coming up in a couple of days, so be sure to check in again soon.  :)
