Time for CASE Study!

Hi there, my friends! Would you like to jumpstart this fine day with a fantastic inspiration?
Head over to CASE Study, for we've got some for you!
We just launched our third challenge (CSC03), and there's a brand new card by Makiko Jones (our muse for August), serving as an inspiration piece:


I chose this one for its undeniable beauty and perfect execution. I love the dimension that the flowers give to an otherwise simple design, and I also wanted to challenge myself to using purple. As many of you, I'm having a hard time working with it - especially when it's paired with blue. That's what I think is wonderful in our challenges - they give me a chance to learn & stretch, while still doing "my thing" ;)

Here is my card... I drifted towards shabby, but kept the lovely, pastel colours, and of course added a flower. This little beauty is hand made by Aesa Lina, and owner of PixiePetals on Etsy, and one of our generous sponsors! You do want to check her store - I promise you that you'll ooh and aah a lot :)


Supplies: cardstock: American Crafts; paper: American Crafts (Dear Lizzy); stamp: Stampin' Up! (Happy Harmony); ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap); pearls: Kaisercraft; edge distresser: Heidi Swapp; burlap; grosgrain ribbon; lace trim; pearl brad; fabric flower

I'm entering the card into FTTC81, which is to use lace. Mmmmmm.... lace.... easy peasy!
