CASE #157 Wanda the Witch

Have you seen the muse this month at CASE Study Challenge?  It's Kathy Racoonsin from The Daily Marker Blog. WOW I am loving her style and getting to copy and share her designs. It's almost like a little peek into her mind! She has a fun way of mixing colors and and creative ways to use die cuts. You have to check her out!

Here's Kathy's design for this week. Remember to play along all you need to do is focus on the elements that interest you on the inspiration. What do I see here? Stripes, a layer of vellum letting the color peek through, that big flower die cut layered on top, and that neat tied bow. I kept true to the layout for the most part. I turned the stripes horizontal, the vellum vertical and that knotted bow into a bauble.   You know I can't resist a little bling - it seems so magical with a Halloween themed card!!  You get the idea - pick up on what you like and turn it into something all you.

Now it's your turn!  If you need a little more inspiration check out the rest of the design team designs.  I know you're going to love what you see. Oh and our special guestie is Amber Hight! Tell her hi when you get a chance!

Have a beautiful day!
