CASE Study Challenge #140 For Mom

Ready for your weekly dose of CASE inspiration?  Well of course you are!!  This month's muse is  Maile Belles from Simply Stamped!   Pure clean and simple goodness here folks so no excuses!  Check out the inspiration photo!  What grabs you?  Is it the flowers? the stamped background? the colors?  So cool how the leaves are stamped on the base of the card and the flowers have been double stamped and then fussy cut  to pop up.  Those little button centers are sweet too.

For me?  I fell for the layout.  I was drawn to the little stem peeking out under the ribbon - looks like a beautiful bouquet of flowers was just tucked in there!  I turned the flowers into paper roses, the leaves into swirls of gems and the ribbon into lace. I still got some leaves hanging over the lace and I think this little bouquet looks "tucked in" as well.  To finish it off I added a bitty tag so my mom knows this one is just for her.  My mom is definitely a "more is more" person and I think she will love all the extras on this one. 

Check out how the rest of the design team was inspired !  Just click on their names below for a little peek!

This one blows me away...I love how you always see something in a case card and just run with it! There is so much beautiful bling on this card. The sparklies, the flowers and that music patterned paper. I really love this one Jeanne.

LOL.. A more is more kind of person...I love that!! You took a gorgeous card of inspiration and turned it into your always BAM style, Jeanne! It's truly beautiful what you've done to merge the papers with the the inlaid stems and leaves and evolved that to the 3D leaves and's truly wonderful. I love the gems and the tag for your Mom. A stunning card for a terrific lady that created the talented YOU!
