CASE Study Challenge #86

It's another week with our April Muse, Laurie Schmidlin, at CASE Study! I chose more vintage-y goodness for us to be inspired with:

I don't know about you, but I'm especially tickled by the striped paper, peeking from behind the layers. I love doing it myself, but today I chose to use that same exact paper (from My Mind's Eye's Lost & Found 2 "Blush" paper pad, as the rest of the papers), in a slightly different way. I used similar elements on my card, though, plus that beautiful, rich colour combo of craft & hot pink. Swoon...


All of the stamps that I inked up, come from Waltzingmouse. I used Cameo Creations and Cameo To Go, with a wee bit of French Country.
I also incorporated a bunch of
Spellbinders™ die templates: the peacock feathers were cut with S4-363 Jewel Fantasies; the flower done with S5-086 Bitty Blossoms, and the oval cut with S4-112 Classic Ovals SM and S4-356 Floral Ovals.

The sketch comes from Card Patterns #160:
