CASE Study Challenge #53

We're continuing with the Anniversary celebrations at CASE Study this month, by giving you a different challenge each week.
This time the challenge is very special to me, as we get to CASE myself. Let me tell you, I can't wait to see what everyone makes! Especially after hearing the feedback from our former Muses, that the experience is so rewarding :)
One of the things that tickle me most about my card-making adventure, is when I see that I give someone inspiration. It's amazing how the little craft that I commit in my craft room, can make an impact on someone who lives on the other side of the world. It's such a humbling knoweledge.

Anyway, rambling aside and let's get the ball rolling! I decided to revisit one of my creations from way back, when I had no idea what I'm doing yet... *wink*
I initially thought that CASEing myself will be a pain, but I actually enjoyed it a lot.
Here's the picture of the card, you can find it here on my former blog.

I like the idea of having the ribbon play a major role in the design. One thing that I enjoy about my early crafting is that I was thinking outside the box. I tend to follow the beaten tracks a lot these days.
While browsing these early cards, I found a couple of ideas that I might revisit again, I also found a few nice layouts that will probably make it into the Sketchbook Saturday some time soon :)

On the previous card I used a piece of DP, now my background is stamped. I also used a stamped fower, and instead of embossing I did some subtle scoring.


Supplies: cardstock: Canson (turquoise), SU! (Old Olive), cream; stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps (Roses In Bloom, Fancy Phrases, Text It), PTI (Guide Lines Two); ink: Versa Magic (Wheat, Aloe Vera, Tuxedo Black), PTI (Fresh Snow), Distress Ink (Pumice Stone); YG95 Copic; grosgrain ribbon; Scor-Buddy

I'd love you to visit the rest of the CASE Study Design Team's blogs, to see what they cooked up with the inspiration...
