CASE#185 CAS Poppies

Happy Thursday!  I bet you know what that means right?  A new challenge begins today at CASE Study Challenge Blog.  And YES!  It's a brand new month - that means we have a totally new muse to inspire you!  This month it's Jaclyn Miller of Designs by JAX.  No doubt you've sen her lots of other places too.  She has lots of DT's and publications under her belt and I think you're going to love what she has prepared for us this month.  

Here's the inspiration photo for this week.  You know the drill.  Study the photo and focus on what inspires you.  So what do you see in this CAS design.  Is it the color that strikes your fancy?  The layout?  Maybe the flowers?  I love the clean negative space of the design and the pop of red from the flowers.  My card features an inlaid red poppy die cut.  I mimicked the clean white background, black stamped sentiment, and even added a few enamel dots as a nod to the little gems on Jaclyn's flowers. 


 Need a little more inspiration?  Just click on the DT names below!  We have a special guestie this month too!! Catherine Pooler from Basics and Beyond blog.



Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a great day and that you join us at CASE Study Challenge Blog!
