CASE Study Challenge #101

I must allow myself the joy of saying today "Hip, hip, hooray! Here's to the next 100 challenges at CASE Study!" Our first 100 is behind us... it's been two years and I feel a bit nostalgic :)
Little I knew, coming up with the innocent idea one day, that it will survive (and flourish!) for this long.
Because, quite fortunately, many of you also enjoy CASE-ing our idols as much as I do, the adventure continues and soon we'll be knee-deep in our 2nd Anniversary celebrations.

Before it happens, there's one more fabulous week with Kristii Lockart and with it comes the last chance for a guilt-free CASE of her artwork. Like this one, for example...

Every now and then I feel like a collage card and I chose the beauty above to aid it... isn't that pop of colour against kraft the loveliest thing ever??
I knew that I'll most probably want to pile up stuff on my card, so I decided on a subtler background instead, and stamped the doilies (October Afternoon Thrift Shop) without embossing, with Old Paper Distress Ink.
The embellishments are a mix of October Afternoon (journal card, die cut with PTI tag die and a glazed "Tin Pin") and Glitz Design (pretty much all the rest). I added some PTI ribbon and baker's twine to the lot.

I let a couple of challenges help me with this card. The (totally rocking) layout comes from rs#21, and the colours from CR84FN59. It happens so that I added some black to the mix... although not all of what you see is black - the sentiment is in fact dark brown. I failed to capture that successfully :/

The Design Team prepared some beautiful samples today as well! Click on the links below to be taken to their blogs.
