CASE Study #116

Hi there, friends!  Can anyone tell me where this week has gone?  It has just flown by!  I could definitely use an extra day in my week to get everything done.  How about you?

One good thing about being at the end of another week is a new CASE Study challenge!  This week we have a special treat, as we're being sponsored by a new stamp company, Clearly Besotted Stamps.  Rumor has it they're offering up 2 of their stamp sets as a prize, so be sure to stop by the CASE Study blog for details!

Here is our inspiration for the week from our November Muse, Angeline Yong Jeet Leen:

By Angeline
Aren't those circle flowers just darling?  I decided to focus on circles for my design, punching different sizes from patterned paper I still had on my desk from the latest 12 Kits of Christmas.

To make the circles a bit more sturdy, I punched cardstock circles to adhere to the backs, then arranged them on a snowflake embossed panel.  I stamped a sentiment on a white banner wrapped with silver string and added a couple of silver pearls as a finishing touch.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye (Merry)
Stamp:  Papertrey Ink (Signature Christmas)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Real Red)
Tools:  Sizzix (embossing folder), circle punches
Accessories:  silver string, pearls

As always, I recommend checking out the samples from the rest of the CASE Study Design Team for more inspiration!

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Love this one, too. The circles in a variety of holiday papers are just delightful, especially against the embossed background. Fantastic. ;-)
