Case Study Challenge #108 - For the Birds

Ok very unusual for me - I actually have 3 posts today.  I have been feeling so productive lately - gotta take advantage of that MOJO when you have it right?  So if you are looking for The Paper Sweeties Day 2 September Release, or Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge please scroll down.  Thank you!!

I was excited to see that I made Top 3 over at CASE last week.  I was playing along with The September muse / guest designer Torico!!  I am always learning something over at Case Study Challenge and I am always trying something new.   This time it was the big window frame - something I think I've only done once before (probably at CASE).  You know I'm a frilly girl and this month, honestly I think Torico is giving me lessons on C&S.  Her style is very clean and graphic something that has alluded me. 
I turned her monkeys into love birds to layer over that big heart, and embossed the white top layer with a simple design.  Instead of the colorful ribbon - I used red to pick up on the red in the patterned paper.  You can take this design any direction you like, you can go bananas, fall in love with the heart, make a rainbow - just grab anything that jumps at you from this cute design.  To make things even sweeter CASE is featuring two guest designers- Anja Curvers and Vickie Zimmer.  Plenty of inspiration here so hop on over and PLAY!!

I love that big window with the cute birds...very pretty with one of my favorite sentiments from WPlus 9. Love this one, the embossed background is subtle but adds so much to your card Jeanne.
