CASE Study #120 Beautiful Bouquet

 Hi and thanks for stopping by!  Ready for your weekly dose of Case Study Challenge inspiration?  It's December - so we have a new Muse for the month .... Windy Robinson from the Ribbon and Bling Blog! 

Check this gorgeous card to inspire us this week.   I am always saying I learn something new at CASE - every single time.  And that is absolutely true.    If you know me you have to know how much I love die cuts.  I use them on every single thing I create (with the rare exception of the EEK!! dreaded one layer card!)    I thought I knew everything there is to know about ways to use a die cut.  But look at this!!!  Windy did something with die cuts that I have never even thought about!  She cut some nesties and left them all stuck together!!!  I mean who would have thunk it??  Looks fab and that is the element that inspired me - I definitely had to CASE this idea! 

I thought I'd switch it up a little big - gotta try and make it all mine afterall!  Instead of using solid dies, I used some really elaborate fancy cuts from Cheery Lynn for an elegant wedding congratulations card!  Speaking of congratulations - did you hear Aimes from the CASE DT is engaged?!!! 
 
 I hope you'll give this one a try too!  You can choose any of the elements from the inspration photo that inspire you.  The flowers, the colors, the layout... work with whatever moves you.  If you'd like to see what the rest of the CASE Design Team came up with  just click on their names..



I Looking forward to seeing you over at CASE Study Challenge Blog!  I can't wait to see how you make this one ALL YOU!!   Have a great day!
Jeanne

Another stunning and beautiful card...those flowers are just amazing and that die is fabulous!

Marybeth said...

Oh soooo pretty…. I can almost smell all those beautiful flowers. I love the way you can use any die, and make it look like it belongs with the card. I get one out and then I end up not using it.

Deborah Frings said...

Wow! Jeanne - this is absolutely stunning, the roses are so pretty and I love the die cut background!

Sharron said...

Breathtaking, Jeanne! Love how you used the die--wonderful look. And your bouquet is so gorgeous! BTW, what die cutting machine do you use? You use so many intricate dies. I really struggle with the ones I have. I'm using a Cuttlebug and even with different sandwiches still have problems.

Holy wow! Jeanne, you've really outdone yourself! It's absolutely spectacular! The frame die cut is so striking. And you know that I love all the bright colors;) The lucky soul who gets this card will be wowed for sure! (Can you tell I like it, lol!)
