I have been wanting to play in the CASE study challenges for a while now - and decided that this was the week to jump in! Mercy Kerin has been the muse for the month - and this is her card that we have been inspired with this week ...
Those lovely 3 focal flowers really do pop out don't they? Earlier this week I had seen THESE beautiful vellum embellies ... and really wanted to try and make something similar.
So here is where the challenge took me:
Instead of changing the colour of the central panel, I opted to change texture for it instead. I used a strip of background stamping - inspired by the original and used stitching instead of the punched border.
The black sentiment is heat embossed on clear cardstock (a first for me, and a lot of fun to try! :0). The pearls in the background are used in lieu of the dotted sparkles in Mercy's original card ... and a lovely big button to finish it off!
So there it is! I was really pleased with the way this one turned out IRL - it's really fresh - and goes well with the weather. It's so mild that we have birds inspecting the bird house in the back yard. (They don't usually nest until March!!) I hope they don't get caught out by a cold spell!
Hope you're in for a TOTALLY WONDERFUL weekend!
