Case Study #81 - Beautiful
Hi! I hope you're having a great weekend. I just got back from my walk to clear my mind and get to business on this card for Case Study. It's really a beautiful day here in the Chicago area - the weather is warm and sunny and all the birds are beginning to return to the area. I saw Robins and heard the whirling sounds of the Sandhill Cranes overhead.
This week's inspiration photo card is from Laura Bassen. I love the clean look and the classic look of the black/white/kraft on her card. I kept a lot of the clean elements from her design - like the oval, black ribbon, and button and put my own little twist on things. I think you can easily see Laura's inspiration here. Case Study is one of my favorite places to play because I always get to try something new and I really enjoy seeing how all the entries start with the same inspiration idea and take it in so many different directions.
I hope you find some time this weekend to play along. Give it a try - you can get all the information here: http://www.casestudychallenge.blogspot.com/2012/03/case-study-challenge-81.html
