Today I'm playing along with Case Study's Challenge #69. The sample design is by this week's guest designer/muse Amy Sheffer. Amy has presented us with gorgeous layered creation for inspiration. I didn't want to just case this one so I made a few changes to make it mine but overall the design is true to the recipe. If you'd like to play along this week you can get all the details here: http://casestudychallenge.blogspot.com/2011/12/case-study-challenge-69.html
I used lots of color for my card layering simple craft paper with deep red cardstock. I used an inexpensive bird stamp from Studio G and paired it up with a sentiment from a Stampin' Up! Set. Instead of using ribbon I used twine - I felt it tied in with the bird image and craft paper better. I double stamped the bird, colored it in Copics and layered it with adhesive foam. Of course I had to get in a little bling so I added the pearls in the corners, little beads on the twine, and some colored pearls for the berries on the branch. I hope you like it and that you're finding time to play along!
