CASE Study Challenge #89

Hello and happy Thursday! Two days left until the weekend, huh? Can't wait!
The beginning of the month always means an introduction of a new CASE Study Muse, and I have an immense pleasure to announce that May belongs to Agnieszka Malyszek!
Aga is a CAS Queen with an eye for a striking design and innovative ideas. I can't wait to share all of her inspiration cards that we've got up our sleeves this month... but for now, ladies and gents, we're settling for this one!

Talk about striking... oh yes, that's Aga. One of those girls whose style you can 'sniff' from afar.
Many DT girls went for black as well (and they did it brilliantly!!), so I decided to go rouge and change the colours to pastels. I think clear embossing looks equally brilliant regardless of what colour you apply it to.
I also went for a pop of colour
, like Aga did on her card.

My card is a mish-mash of stamps: the embossed rose is from Glitz Design, the leaves from WPlus9, and the sentiment from PTI. I haven't pulled out the last one in what seems like ages, and the handwriting look
was exactly what I was after.
The embossing powder that I used, is "Kaleidoscope" from Stampendous, and you can see that it gives a shimmery, prismatic look:

For further inspiration, I used rs#9 and ric#11 fashion photo sketch below.

The Design Team prepared some beautiful samples today as well, click on any of the links to be taken to their blogs:
