It's time!! CASE Study Challenge #1

I've been waiting for this moment for long enough, to have my nails bitten and me nerves wrecked... lol
No, it wasn't this harsh really, but I did wait for this moment impatiently.
Today launches the first challenge over at CASE Study challenge blog, which also happens to be my project! Goodness knows how much I hope that you'll all love it... :) one thing I know for sure - I've assembled THE BEST Design Team EVAH!!

So, what's the deal, you're asking?
We're featuring a new Guest Designer (Muse) every month, and draw inspiration from some of her best creations. Each week I choose a new project made by this person, and the Design Team creates their own, based on the provided inspiration. The name of the blog is "CASE Study", but we're not asking you to CASE the project entirely, if you don't feel like it. All we want you to do is to show us how our Muse inspires YOU. Easy peasy? Yes.

Let me introduce you to our Muse for August.... Makiko Jones!
I settled down for this girl for a good reason... have you seen her cards? No??? ACK! You better do, 'cause she's one wildly talented paper crafter! :)
I chose this awe-inspiring card of Maki, to be our jumping point for this week:


Here's my Muse-inspired card:


Supplies: cardstock: DCWV; paper: My Mind's Eye; stamps: Sullivans, Flourishes; ink: ColorBox (Peach Pastel; Blush Rose), StazOn (Olive); border punch: Fiskars; pearls: Kaisercraft; sewing machine, buttons; cuttlebug Houndstooth embossing folder; decorative chalks: Pebbles; silk ribbon available here; Nestabilities Pinking Circles

I designed my card around the beautiful Flourishes sketch (FTTC79):
