CASE Study Challenge #27

Hello, lovelies!!
Another Thursday means another CASE Study challenge, but this week we are hosting a very special event - we are pairing up with The Play Date Cafe challenge blog, for a one-of-a-kind combined challenge!!

We are having an inspiration piece from our February Muse Eva Dobilas, as usual, but in addition to that, there is a colour combo to follow, provided by the Play Date Cafe. The colours are taken from the given card.

It's up to you as a CASE Study player, whether you want to follow the colours, or just be inspired by the card in your own way. The only reason why I encourage you to use these colours on your inspired card, is that there are special bonus prizes up for grabs, for the players who choose to follow both CASE Study and Play Date Cafe requirements!

In addition top our regular weekly prize (provided by the fabulous Layers Of Color), there is another one waiting for you in The Play Date Cafe blog, and drum roll please... Julie from PDCC and I are having a bonus candy for those who play both of our challenges this week!! It's a set of five amazing background sets from Ippity! Heck yeah, it surely looks like FUN!!!

We would LOVE you to join us, and you can read upon all the details here on the CASE Study blog.

Now on to my inspired card... I really like the eclectic look that I achieved. I started with the same papers that Eva used on hers, they happen to be one of my all-time favourites. As usually, I kept adding to the basic layout until I was satisfied with the amount of stuff on the card... lol
I'm SO not the "keep it simple" girl, haha!
