CASE Study # 95

********************************************************************************
Over at CASE Study this month,  the muse is none other than the uber talented Joy Taylor.  I didn't get time to play last week, and with only a day or so left, I decided I need to get organised and play along.

Here's the card Joy chose to inspire us to CASE. 

Isn't it just stunningly beautiful.

So here's my take on this wonderful card.

Case Study


I followed Joy's basic design, but used a Hero Arts/BasicGrey border stamp to represent the die cuts. I stamped in with Stone Wash mid-tone shadow ink.  I also used a big blue butterfly ( kindly sent to me ages ago by Arlene) with my flower.  It was a watercolour paper flower I was practising on.  I added some silver and pink gems for the centre.  My offering is inconsequential compare to the amazing creation by Joy, but I am happy with the outcome.  I really like the CAS look I achieved with this card.

I should be preparing for another job interview tomorrow... but it seems I've had heaps of practise of late..... maybe this time, I'll get a team leader job again... but if not.... well so be it.  As long as I give it my best shot...

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my little part of the blog world.

Hello Dawn
You have cased the card beautifully,
Placing the butterfly underneath the flower works well.
