Case Study #85 - Typewriter

I hope you had a fabulous Easter!   The weather was beautiful and I had my parents and sister over for a great meal.  I made ham with all the trimmings and finished it off with a home made carrot cake with cream cheese icing.  My daughter and I piped on little orange carrots complete with greenery.

Today I'm playing along with Case Study.   I  love the inspiration from their guest designers, and getting  to try some new techniques.  This week's  
Case Study Challenge #85 is inspired by muse/guest designer Laurie Schmidlin

Here's the beauty of CASE -  focus on the elements you love about the design, improvise, and make a unique creation of your own.  It's not hard to see all the elements that I adored about Laurie's design - the color combination, the black stitching, and the flowers with the twine and tulle.  I took those elements and improvised with the supplies I had on hand and added a few extras of my own like the keyhole and key.  I always love seeing all the different directions the sketch goes.
Thanks so much for having a look, I hope you are inspired to play along!

I dcon't know how you do it Jeanne, what a great card. There are so many really interesting details on this card, love that keyhole and key, but that netting is just my favorite element. It was a brilliant choice, just loved it.
