CASE Study #200

It's the 200th challenge over at CASE Study Challenge blog and the Muse is the amazing Shari Carroll with a delightful card.


I decided to try and use a circle stencil and some blue ink to make my background

CASE Study # 200

The stencil is one from The Crafter's Workshop and I used a blue distress ink.  I stamped the work Brilliant (by Heidi Swapp) onto some grey card and the rest of the sentiment from Winnie & Walter.  The PP was punched and I added the heart and a little star.  I added the strip of black card down one side 

Winter is making it's presence felt here with some cold and wet weather.  Perfect to spend some time crafting this weekend.  I've been asked to make another card in a box.... here is the work in progress

Still a bit of work to be done to finish.    I did get a few other cards done too...Some DT work and my July CCC card... will share that when Cat lets me know it's arrived.
