CASE Study #198 - Noteworthy

Are you starting the weekend early?  I'd love to hear about your plans for the weekend.  Summer is in full swing now isn't it?  It seems like it takes me a while to adjust to everyone's different schedules - the kids are on break from school so they're at home and at work different hours.  But I think I have it figured out now and am changing my own routine accordingly.   A new puppy threw a wrench in my schedule as well.  The late nights are disappearing and the early mornings are back. Speaking of Miss Moriko - she is putting on some weight and I think her ears will be standing up by this time next week.  

A new challenge begins today at CASE Study.  Our muse this month is  Shari Carroll,  The Creative Director and Product Manager for Simon Says Stamp.   And this week we're having fun with this trendy looking collage card.  SO what do you see?  The die cut background, the color scheme, the numbers?   What about that row of sequins on the right?   I loved the die cut background, but you know me... I have to have my bright colors.  Instead of stamping all my elements like I normally do I decided to take a cue from the inspiration and use printed embellishments from Basic Grey.  I bought these a few months ago and never used them because sometimes using pre-made elements seems like "cheating" to me.  They seemed to fit perfectly for this challenge and I was glad I could put them to use for a blog card.
