CSC#200 - Take Note!

Thanks for stopping by!  It's Thursday - and to me that means a new challenge at CASE Study!  I've been playing at CASE for almost three years now and it's still one of my favorite places to play.  I love that Chupa finds a new muse every month.  It inspires me to look at cardmaking in a whole different way.  I've really been loving the inspiration from  Shari Carroll.  Here's her project we're casing this week.  All you need to do is study the design, focus on the elements you love and then make it your own.    So what do you see?  Maybe it's the color scheme, or the clean layout?  Don't you love the pop of red from the heart?  I  got stuck on the repeating pattern of circles.

I switched out the circles for arrows.  First I stamped the arrows / chevrons on white card stock, and then embossed it.   I added a die cut arrow and sentiment in black to draw your eye and then finished it up with a sprinkle of sequins and enamel dots.

 
 Now it's your turn!  Or maybe you need a little more inspiration?  Check out what the CASE Study DT made.  And  - we have two guesties this month! Amy Tsuruta and Tenia Nelson!!

This is awesome! I'm amazed at how inspiration struck...I can see how her card stemmed your design, but you also made it so very unique and different. Love it.
