CASE Study Challenge #17

Happy Thursday guys, I hope you're ready for another CASE Study challenge!
This week is extra special, for we're having not only a fabulous new Muse - my dear blogging friend and a super talented paper crafter Nina Brackett, but we get to introduce another amazing lady to our Design Team - Cristina! I'm so excited to have her on board!
Unfortunately, our dear Teneale is taking some time off, due to health problems. I hope you'll find some time to stop by her blog and wish her well!

I chose a fabulous Holiday card from Nina for this week, there's no better time to get in the festive mood than NOW!


I love Nina's elaborate style, she perfected shabby and stylish and I could look at her work for hours. When working on my card, of course I couldn't pass using some yummy lace, but first of all I set myself a goal to create a rich look by using only one sheet of DP in the background. I think I did well, especially that the Verve sketch that I followed, had four layers ;)


Supplies: cardstock: Stampin' Up! (River Rock); paper: Prima; stamps: Sweet n' Sassy; ink: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap), Versa Color (Sand Beige); lace trim; wrinkled ribbon available here; string; button; pearl strip: Scrapbooking Bitz; rhinestone: Kaisercraft; sewing machine

Here's the VLVNov2010 Week5 sketch that I followed (along with the chosen inspiration here):
